You know I have to use the Denver motto “Mile High City” in a pun, so here goes: “Mile High” has a different meaning in Denver.

Voters in Denver have passed a measure that makes it legal for residents over the age of 21 to possess up to an ounce of marijuana.

Initiative 100 won by a margin of 53% to 46%.

Opponents have said that it will have no practical effect because it would be trumped by Colorado state law.

However, 9News political analyst Floyd Ciruli says it would send a powerful message to groups around the country working to decriminalize marijuana.

Puff puff, give! Puff puff, give!
