DURANGO - Durango police say they still don't know why two men were giving away marijuana at a downtown street corner.
Joseph Bires and Daniel McKnight are facing charges of disturbing the peace and being in possession of more than 1 ounce of marijuana after they were arrested on Monday.
Colorado law now allows people age 21 or older to possess less than 1 ounce of marijuana. It can be consumed in a private residence, but it is illegal to consume or display the drug in public.
According to the Durango Herald (http://tinyurl.com/b7mmnrf ), the men were given a municipal citation and released.
