Denver Objects To Orchestra’s Plan for Bring-Your-Own-Pot Performances


The Colorado Symphony Orchestra may rethink its plans for headline-grabbing, bring-your-own-pot performances after Denver city officials objected, the Denver Post reports. In the city’s view, the trio of fundraising concerts starting May 23 risk violating state and city laws barring public consumption of marijuana. Should the orchestra ignore the city’s instructions, a letter to the orchestra, says, “We will exercise any and all options available to the city of Denver to halt the event and hold the business owners (and) event organizers responsible for any violations of law.”

The city’s stance has the orchestra reviewing its plans for “Classically Cannabis: The High Note Series.” The Orchestra said that when it “accepted support from the legal cannabis industry — as a means of supporting our financial operations and connecting with a culturally diverse audience — we believed we did so in full compliance with the law.”
