Denver to shutter noncommercial marijuana grows

Denver plans shut down dozens of pot-growing collectives scattered across the city.

The City Council voted 11-0 Monday to limit noncommercial pot-growing operations to 36 plants.

The city says there about 60 pot-growing sites that will be affected by the new ordinance.

The collectives are advertised as places to grow pot for people who can’t or don’t want to grow them at home. Many are not permitted by landlords or homeowners’ associations to grow the six plants they’re authorized under state law.

Private homes are already limited to 12 plants, no matter how many adults live there.

City officials say the collectives don’t operate under the safety codes of commercial grows.

A handful of patients attended the meeting and said they may sue over the change.
