City Council hears testimony on recreational marijauna

Cannabis advocate Mark Slaugh speaks to City Council.

Last night, Colorado Springs City Council held a roughly five-hour meeting at City Hall to hear from people on whether or not recreational-marijuana stores should be allowed or banned in the city. Among local jurisdictions, both El Paso County and Woodland Park have already declined to host the facilities.

The meeting started with a pre-set slate of speakers who were each given seven minutes. After that, speakers from the general public were allotted three minutes each. No vote was taken by Council; it's holding a work session on July 8 with action to come July 23.

Below are my tweets about the event, as well as a few from other community members tweeting along.
