MMJ takes a hit across Colorado

Posted By on Wed, Apr 6, 2011 at 2:09 PM


Yesterday, several municipalities within Colorado voted on the fate of medical marijuana within their zones, and all decided that limitation of the drug was desired.

Grand Junction set a record with its vote total, says KREX.

Tuesday night, however, the ban was upheld with 7,802 votes in favor of the ordinance and only 5,703 against outlawing the shops.

Grand Junction City Councilman Gregg Palmer explained when the shops will shut their doors. "We have now effectively said that the ordinance was proper. Traditionally, ordinances take effect in 30 days. This is obviously quite a ways after that initial effect, so I would think that in a very short order people would have to comply."

Castle Rock also decided it could do without the natural alternative, reports the Denver Post.

The vote means that the only dispensary in the city, Plans 4 Life, will have to close down by April 15. The town council last year voted in favor of banning the dispensaries in the town and Tuesday's vote upheld that decision.

Lastly, Larkspur and Poncha Springs are now medical-pot-free.
