The Denver ordinance passed Monday night seeks to curb the city’s vibrant and competitive marijuana industry. Council members said the city needs to crack down on the advertising.
The advertising ban requires one more vote, but its passage appears certain.
The ban would apply to billboard, bus-bench and sidewalk sign-twirler advertising.
The ordinance doesn’t affect print advertising or radio or television ads, but the ads would have to include the disclaimer that pot is “for registered Colorado medical marijuana patients only.”
