GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- The city of Glenwood Springs is extending its moratorium on accepting applications for retail marijuana businesses through the end of the year after the city council said it cannot meet an Oct. 1 deadline to put local regulations in place.
The council voted 4-1 at a special meeting Tuesday to continue the moratorium until Dec. 31. The vote reverses an earlier decision to let the current moratorium expire on Oct. 1.
According to the Glenwood Springs Post Independent, the new deadline was set because existing medical marijuana dispensaries are allowed to apply with the state for permission to expand into the retail marijuana market starting in January.
