Funny but not Funny at all. The following is a news about Denver liquor stores and dispensaries, after Denver mayor announced “Stay-at-Home” order except for essential needs. It only took three hours for the city of Denver to reverse order to close both after listing liquor stores and recreational dispensaries as “non-essential”
Denver Mayor Michael Hancock changed course drastically Monday evening after announcing earlier in the day that liquor stores and recreational marijuana dispensaries would close across the city in an attempt to slow the spread of coronavirus.
His office made a new announcement around 5 p.m. via Twitter, saying that liquor and marijuana stores “with extreme physical distancing in place” will be exempt from the mandated citywide closure of non-essential businesses starting at 5 p.m. Tuesday and continuing through April 10. The definition of extreme is six feet, or the normal amount of social distancing that’s now recommended, the city clarified.
Hancock’s shift came just hours after he had deemed liquor stores and recreational marijuana dispensaries non-essential businesses, as opposed to groceries, gas stations and healthcare operations.
Is it funny? Not at all. It is Denver.
