Yes it’s true that Denver is called the Mile High City. It’s also accurate, because the altitude of the city is roughly one mile above sea level. Even if the city was well below sea level it would still be called the Mile High City because that is how high you will get being there! I live about two hours away from Denver, yet every time I visit I always think that one day I should move there for good. There are a million amazing things to see and to do in Denver and the surrounding areas. The skiing is spectacular, the fine dining is exemplary, but above all else the cannabis in Denver is out of this world. Because of how Denver has been presented in the media for being a cannabis-friendly city, some people think that it’s okay to just light up a joint wherever you are. This is not the case at all. In Denver and the rest of Colorado cannabis is just as legal as tobacco… but just like tobacco, you can’t smoke it where you please. Smoking cannabis in a private residence in Denver is perfectly legal, and carrying it in public is also legal. But people don’t walk down the public streets smoking marijuana in downtown Denver, and believe me when I say that smoking while driving will get you in a lot of trouble. The presence of legal cannabis in Denver has led to many social changes for the city itself. There is a robust police force, which makes the cannabis-friendly city of Denver one of the safest cities in America.
