Silverthorne, Colo. (AP) - Silverthorne officials are pondering what regulations to put in place for medical marijuana dispensaries as they process the town's first business application to sell the drug.

In the meantime, the town has issued a 90-day moratorium on other applications as they discuss what the hours of operations should be for the dispensaries and how close they can be to schools.

Town Manager Kevin Batchelder says the moratorium won't affect the business application for high country healing because that proposed dispensary was already considered a drug store or pharmacy under the town's old codes.

Batchelder says there's little guidance on what rules to put in place for medical marijuana dispensaries because they're relatively new.
