Cannabis conflict

Posted By on Mon, May 24, 2010 at 10:27 AM


As we've previously reported, new state medical marijuana regulations — though the governor has still yet to sign House Bill 1284 — have people scrambling to keep up. A report from the Denver Post confirms the problems are hardly local to the Springs.

City councils that have been unreceptive to medical-marijuana dispensaries began taking steps to formally ban them — something the new rules would allow them to do.

Meanwhile, dispensary owners and independent marijuana growers engaged in a mad scramble for dance partners to comply with the rules' requirement that dispensaries grow at least 70 percent of the marijuana they sell.

Meanwhile, the Aurora Sentinel is reporting that the city is laudably going to bring the banning of dispensaries to the people, though some on Council are opposed.

“My preference would be to ban it in Aurora. But given the fact that people voted in favor (of Amendment 20), we can talk all day about whether anything has changed,” said Councilman Bob Broom. “I’d say let’s go to the voters to see if they want to ban it or not.”
