County enacts moratorium on pot shops

-A A +A
By Ramsey Scott

Jeffco has decided to put the brakes on retail marijuana businesses in unincorporated areas of the county.

The county commissioners voted 3-0 to prohibit any retail marijuana businesses from setting up shop. The ban includes retail sales and growing operations, along with testing and packaging facilities.

The ordinance is set to expire on Feb. 1, 2015, unless the commissioners vote to extend it, make it permanent or repeal it. Amendment 64, approved by voters in November and legalizing recreational marijuana, allows county and city governments to opt out of retail sales.
