Commerce City continues ban on recreational marijuana
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — City Council members in Commerce City decided Monday night to continue a ban there on recreational marijuana.
The city first established a moratorium on marijuana-related businesses in May 2013 in order to give the city time to review licensing regulations and the federal government’s response to Amendment 64, said spokeswoman Julia Emko.
“The city chose to continue the moratorium for another year to collect additional data on unknown community impacts such as the amount of revenue the city will see, job creation or loss, property value increase or decrease, health and safety impacts, and marijuana use among minors,” Emko said.
Voters approved Recreational marijuana in November 2012. Sales began in December 2013.AlertMe
