Marijuana Mansion - 1889 - ( Haunted ) Denver, Colorado

Originally known as The Creswell House, the Marijuana Mansion was built in 1889 for the family of Joseph Creswell. Creswell was a prominent businessman that made his living providing the infrastructure for steam heating in the Denver’s downtown buildings. He served as the president of the Colorado Marble & Mining Company and the Manufacturers Exchange, where he advocated to transform the city into a manufacturing hub. In more recent years, the home was utilized as offices and ended up playing an important role in the legalization of marijuana, thus earning its new nickname, “The Marijuana Mansion.” Amendment 64 was a Colorado Marijuana Legalization Amendment that passed with a 55 percent vote in November of the 2012 election and was an official amendment of the Colorado Constitution on December 10th, 2012. This amendment allows individuals above the age of 21 to purchase and consume marijuana up to an ounce as well as farm up to six plants. (Follow me on YouTube :: Unknown Ventures )
