Windsor pot shop to stay open despite moratorium - The Denver Post

Windsor pot shop to stay open despite moratorium - The Denver Post
WINDSOR, Colo.—Dozens of Colorado towns have put moratoriums on medical marijuana dispensaries.

One northern Colorado pot shop says it'll stay open anyway.

The Medigrow dispensary in Windsor says it will defy a moratorium passed Dec. 16 in the Weld County town. Medigrow opened five days before the moratorium was approved, but it was not included on a list of dispensaries that could stay open during the moratorium.

Windsor officials say the dispensary could be fined up to $300 a day for staying open despite the moratorium. Dispensary owners tell The (Greeley) Tribune that they'll pay any fines while they contest being left off the list.

Two dispensaries in Windsor have been allowed to stay open during the moratorium. A Feb. 18 court date has been set for the Medigrow dispute.
