Social Hosts in Denver

Exchanges over consumption lounges in Denver is a heated topic. Finding appropriate locations for the businesses appease some concerns while anyone wishing to utilize them is a bit underwhelmed by the experience. In short,¬†Full-Service¬†is inaccessible due to rules on consent, and a lack of sanitizing standards for a “clean rig”. Without establishing standard practices for this, licensed public consumption will be BYOBud.¬†

One company from the mind of Jake Westling by the name of Pipe Dreams, operates his own business doing exactly that; cleaning your glass! Utilizing a 60 Gallon tank and a process relying on heat and ultrasound to knock off all of the resins, the waste is then washed away by his own citrus cleaner, dried, and disposed of. Without the backing of the state and some quantifiable evidence of sanitation, licensed facilities won’t be able to argue they are reliably cleaning any in-house glass for public use.
All that being said, The Coffee Joint & the Privately owned lounges in Denver host plenty of events to draw a crowd. Looking for the party? Want to meet plenty of like-minds? Follow 420 friendly event sites like Colorado Pot Guide, Meetup, Sensi Magazine, and Westword! The Coffee Joint events can also be found on Facebook & our Webpage!

Denver may be opening access to Public Consumption Spaces however, the need for a cleaning and sanitation program will need filled before anyone can host with their own glass. -OR- Denver can address the conflicts in consent for social consumption in a similar fashion to local liquor laws.

Still Reaching for Sustainable Access

There is a new concern for responsible home grow procedures and its coming from Big Marijuana. Like growing tomatoes, brewing beer, & making soap, society tends to research the most effective and safest methods for home production. The arguments made so far have been weak and ill-fit at best. While raising legitimate concerns, the restrictions promoted will miss the mark and keep the industry, the products, and opportunities in the hands of big business.
