Dillon Rejects Dispensaries

The Denver Post
DILLON, Colo.—Medical marijuana dispensaries have been banned, for now, in one Summit County town. The Dillon city council has voted down regulations that would have allowed dispensaries. The town is just a few miles east of Breckenridge, where voters this week made marijuana in small amounts legal for adults.
Tuesday's vote in Dillon extends a pot shop moratorium until Feb. 13. Already two dispensaries are open elsewhere in Summit County, with more expected soon in Breckenridge after that town approved dispensary rules.
Towns across Colorado are struggling to figure out how to regulate medical marijuana shops. The growth of pot shops has led some to call on the state legislature to lay down a statewide law regulating dispensaries.
