Denver residents will be allowed to grow only 12 marijuana plants per household for recreational use, the City Council decided Monday.
The council continues to work on developing rules and regulations about pot as the Jan. 1 deadline approaches, when it will be legal for stores to sell pot to adults 21 and older.
On Monday, the legislative body worked throughout the afternoon on several issues — making final decisions on where pot can be smoked on private property and how much cannabis can be grown per dwelling.
"In 22 days, the image of our city and state will change," said Councilman Charlie Brown. "Some won't be pleased with what we've decided, and some will."
