business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Associated Press reports that "Denver voters have approved a first-in-the-nation law allowing willing bars and restaurants to give patrons the option to use marijuana alongside a cocktail or meal. The catch: Smoking pot won’t be allowed inside, and the locations would have to first get the approval of neighbors.

"Denver voters approved Proposition 300 on the same day that the nation’s largest state of California and two others legalized pot for all adults and five more states approved pot for sick people - signs of society’s increasing tolerance for the drug."

One caveat: Customers have to bring their own pot.
KC's View:
I'm amazed the degree to which tolerance and normalization of marijuana has gained momentum; as I've confessed here in the past, I'm conflicted about it.

I'm also curious to see how the Trump administration deals with the issue. My understanding is that if the federal government decided to strictly enforce federal drug laws, they could render the state laws allowing for sale and use of marijuana virtually irrelevant.
