Legalizing Marijuana in Denver
Denver (AP) - Denver is a step closer to legal pot stores.
The City Council has approved rules and regulations for the retail marijuana industry.
However, city officials say they plan to meet with police and judges about how to enforce laws against firing up a joint in public.
The Denver Post reports the new regulations bar pot stores within 1,000 feet of a school, child care center, drug and alcohol treatment center or another marijuana facility.
Voters in Colorado legalized pot last year.
Retail pot stores are expected to open at the beginning of next year.
