DENVER (AP) -- The Denver city attorney says the city's pleased with the Colorado Symphony's efforts to align its bring-your-own-cannabis fundraising concerts with city and state law.
Earlier, city attorney Scott Martinez had expressed concern that audiences were going to smoke marijuana in public, which is illegal even though selling and consuming marijuana has been legal under Colorado law since January.
On Tuesday, the symphony said three events scheduled to kick off later this month at a private Denver gallery would be invitation-only. The symphony also removed information about the events from its website and is refunding tickets purchased already.
In a statement Wednesday, Martinez said the city is pleased the symphony revisited its plans and worked to come into compliance with state and city laws.
