We hate to break it to you, but no.

Rumours about the PlayPlaces at Colorado-area locations being decommissioned in favour of ventilated, marijuana-smoking pods have been swirling on the internet for weeks, accompanied by coverage seemingly originating from a local news site.

That site would be Now8News.com, a "for entertainment only" parody news outlet with other top headlines including "Blood Moon Sparks Gang War Between Bloods And Crips" and "Dying Police Officer Claims He Was Paid To Fake Tupac's Death."

The folks over at Snopes.com officially debunked the McWeed rumour back on Oct. 5.

Fortunately, there are healthier, non-chain options if you want to eat out in Denver, but none yet where you can consume cannabis - and certainly none equipped with the silly, futuristic pods pictured in the fake article.
