DENVER, Colorado (KUSA) -- It was supposed to be a done deal: No smoking pot on your front porch in Denver, Colorado.

All that was left was for the Denver City Council to take its final vote on a pot use ordinance that included a ban on use pot on private residential property, if it was in plain view of the sidewalk or street.

But just before the final vote Monday, came an amendment.

"Please indulge me folks while we have another groundhog day," Councilwoman Susan Shepherd said.

Shepherd offered an amendment that would strike the front porch ban on pot, worried that it would be a drag on city cops to enforce, "by tangling up our dispatch situation with people snitching on their neighbors."

It wasn't long before it became clear that there were converts to her cause.
