PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) Pueblo County officials have agreed to allow recreational marijuana sales next year, but to cap the number of dispensaries at 10.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports that Pueblo County commissioners voted Wednesday in favor of marijuana regulations that set the framework for licenses, enforcement and fees.

The vote on proposed zoning rules for retail pot stores was postponed until Oct. 21.

The county also accepted a cap on the number of local dispensaries that can transfer from medical to recreational next year. No more than 10 dispensaries will be able to transition into Pueblo's new market next year.

Pueblo currently has six dispensaries in business and four more in the various stages of applying.
