GARFIELD COUNTY, Colo. (AP) -- Garfield County commissioners are saying no to the recreational marijuana industry.

The commission voted 2-to-1 on Monday to ban recreational marijuana growing, product manufacturing facilities, testing facilities and retail stores in unincorporated areas.

The ban will prevent 10 current medical marijuana growers from converting their businesses to supply the recreational market.
