DENVER — The city of Denver is urging the Colorado Symphony to call off a series of pot-themed fundraising concerts.

The events are strictly BYOC — Bring Your Own Cannabis. But The Denver Post reported (http://tinyurl.com/pekpp4h ) that the Denver City Attorney has warned the orchestra that the events still violate state laws against public consumption of marijuana.

The series is sponsored by some of the state's marijuana businesses and is scheduled to start with the first of three concerts at a private art gallery on May 23. It culminates with a performance at Red Rocks Amphitheater on Sept. 13. Concert-goers were to be allowed to light up at a separate area of the gallery. Marijuana consumption at Red Rocks is illegal.
