GREELEY, Colorado – Marijuana is now legal in Colorado, but that doesn’t mean it’s welcomed everywhere in the state.

A barbershop owner is now refusing to serve people who smell like pot. Hugo Corral said he has no problem with people who smoke marijuana, but many of his customers aren’t fans of the odor.

"When people call, a mother calls and says, 'Hey we can’t go in there anymore because we don’t want it to smell like marijuana when my child’s sitting there waiting,' said Corral. "I feel that it’s my right to make the statement. It’s the same thing as no shoes no service."

For the most part, he said the response has been positive, but others have vandalized his window and threatened him with lawsuits.

Corral said if they don’t like it then they can go somewhere else.
