Denver liquor stores, dispensaries exempt from stay-at-home order


DENVER, Colo. (KRDO) -- Denver Mayor Michael Hancock announced a stay-at-home order Monday afternoon, closing all non-essential services. The order is set to go into effect at 5 p.m. Tuesday and initially included liquor stores and recreational marijuana dispensaries.

Almost immediately, long lines formed as residents flocked to their nearest retailer.

The City of Denver soon after announced an amendment to the stay-at-home order, now allowing liquor stores and dispensaries to stay open so long as they practice "extreme physical distancing."

It's not clear yet what "extreme physical distancing" looks like, but the City of Denver is reminding residents the situation is fluid and will evolve as needed.

  1. Very many details missing from this extremely hard to enforce “stay at home order” that homeless and criminals are laughing at.

  2. Denver backtracked on the liquor and pot sales when they saw all the people lined up and realized how much tax revenue they were going to lose.
