Marijuana activists Mason Tvert and Brian Vicente held a press conference decrying a new proposal that would potentially criminalize marijuana smoking in one's own home if its odor can be smelled outside it.
In a press release announcing the event (see it below), Tvert and Vicente denounce the concept as unconstitutional and charge Mayor Michael Hancock, who backs the policy, of hypocrisy by announcing it during this week's Great American Beer Festival.
According to the Denver Post, the ordinance, which is expected to be presented at Monday's Denver City Council meeting, "would prohibit smoking on private property if it is visible to the public, such as on a front porch or in a car, or if the odor of pot could be detected from a neighboring property."
Those who violate this edict would face a fine of up to $999 and up to a year in jail.
Speaking in support of the measure, Mayor Hancock told the Post, "Your activities should not pervade others' peace and ability to enjoy. Marijuana is one of those elements that can be quite pervasive and invasive. I shouldn't have to smell your activities from your backyard."
Vicente rejects these assertions. In a statement, he says, "If this ordinance is adopted, the Denver city marijuana tax will pay for police to look in people's windows and snoop around their homes sniffing for a reason to put them in jail for up to a year for doing something legal under the state constitution."
