ASPEN, Colo. (AP) Aspen's legal and planning departments are recommending that recreational pot shops be allowed in Aspen, but they want them temporarily limited to businesses run by existing medical marijuana dispensaries.
Planning director Chris Bendon and assistant city attorney Debbie Quinn sent city officials a report saying the temporary move will better help the city implement a new state law that legalized marijuana.
According to the Aspen Daily News, the Aspen City Council plans to take up the issue on Monday.
