Colorado Springs Bans Recreational Marijuana Retail Stores

July 24th

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO — Officials in Colorado’s second-largest city voted on Tuesday to ban recreational marijuana shops, becoming the largest community in the state to utilize an opt-out provision of a law that legalized the non-medical use of pot.

After two hours of public comments, the Colorado Springs City Council voted 5-4 to bar retail pot stores from opening within the city limits. The debate and vote came after Mayor Steve Bach publicly said he would veto the ordinance if the council approved allowing the recreational outlets.

“I say we should stand with our neighbors on this issue,” Bach testified before the vote, referring to nearby communities in the same county that have banned the pot shops.

Colorado Springs has a population of about 420,000 with a large military and evangelical Christian presence and is one of the most conservative and Republican areas in a state which in recent election cycles has turned leftward.

Last year, Colorado and Washington were the first U.S. states to legalize recreational marijuana, and the Colorado law allows cities or counties to outlaw marijuana stores in their communities. Nearly . . . . . READ MORE

Colorado Springs, CO: No Recreational Marijuana Stores

July 23rd

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO — Colorado’s second largest city, Colorado Springs, is on the verge of banning recreational marijuana retail stores, forfeiting a projected $3 million in  recreational marijuana sales taxes for the city.

The City Council is expected to vote Tuesday on whether or not to ban retail pot shops under last year’s Amendment 64, which legalized retail sales of cannabis to adults in the state.

Four of nine city council members have said that they plan on voting against allowing retail marijuana stores in the city, but even if the council votes to allow the retail sale of marijuana to adults 21 or older, Mayor Steve Bach says he will veto any ordinance allowing the stores to open in the city.

There does not appear to be enough support on the council to overturn a mayoral veto.

Colorado Springs is the second largest city in the state, behind Denver.  Located at the base of Pike’s Peak and the Rocky Mountains, the city is a popular tourist destination, with an estimated 5 million visitors annually.

It was projected that recreational marijuana sales in the city would generate approximately $3 million annually in tax revenue for the city.  Sales would be limited to one ounce of pot for Colorado residents or a quarter of an ounce for out of state visitors.

Colorado Springs is the county seat of El Paso County, where Amendment 64 passed by 10 votes.  Even before the election, county commissioners for El Paso Count. . . . . READ MORE
