Donate to Denver's Neighborhood Supported Social Use Campaign
The Neighborhood Supported Cannabis Consumption Pilot Program (NSCCPP) was designed with the interests of both cannabis consumers and Denver neighborhoods in mind and requires
all cannabis consumption permit holders to engage local neighborhoods
before gaining approval from the city, to ensure neighborhood
compatibility and to address all community concerns. The initiative
empowers eligible neighborhood organizations to be involved in the
permit approval process, by providing input on permit restrictions to
protect the interests, health, safety and welfare of the surrounding
community. It provides maximum flexibility in terms of the type of
establishments that may allow social cannabis use, but balances that
flexibility with a permitting process that incorporates community input
to ensure the establishments are not only properly regulated but also
have local support.
in Business Improvement Districts, this initiative empowers local
business owners to create a differentiation in their business model to
bring local consumers to their underutilized areas, while working with
their eligible neighborhood organizations to do so in a manner that is
respectful of community culture and existing priorities for the
neighborhood. With oversight from law enforcement, fire and health
officials, as well as the Director of Excise and Licenses, all cannabis
consumption establishments must fulfill robust safety and security
requirements in order to maintain a cannabis consumption permit. As
this is a new endeavor for all stakeholders, this proposed ordinance
has a sunset provision that dissolves this ordinance after four years
from passing if it has not been extended by City Council or voter
initiative prior to that time. The ordinance is set to expire December
31, 2020 unless extended by city council or a future voter initiative.
is the goal of the NSCCPP to provide adults with safe and supervised
consumption environments, comparable with alcohol regulations, and to
provide cannabis consumers access to traditional social
environments without being segregated from mainstream society.
