Denver's Neighborhood Approved Social Consumption Campaign

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.

Especially 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.

It 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.

Your generous support will help us fund a winning campaign to pass the Denver Neighborhood Supported Cannabis Consumption Pilot Program initiative on Tuesday November 8, 2016.
