DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Symphony Orchestra’s bring-your-own-cannabis fundraising concerts kick off Friday.

Plans had hit a snag when the Denver city attorney questioned whether concert-goers would consume marijuana in public, which is banned even though sale and possession of the drug are legal under a state law that went into effect at the start of the year.

The city attorney withdrew his objections after the symphony took steps to ensure the events are strictly private. Three invitation-only concerts are being held at a private gallery across town from the symphony’s usual home, a city-owned concert hall.

A brass quintet of symphony players will perform at the first concert. Jane West, who is organizing the series for the symphony, says musicians, caterers and security guards are ready for opening night.
