Brush, Colo. (AP) - Medical marijuana is up for debate in a small northeast Colorado town.

The City Council of Brush plans to take up zoning for medical marijuana dispensaries on Monday night. At issue is whether the Morgan County town should change its code to comply with a state law making the dispensaries legal.

Last week, Grand County in Western Colorado became the latest to place a moratorium on marijuana dispensaries.

Medical marijuana was approved by Colorado voters in 2000, but local governments have control over zoning decisions on where the dispensaries can open.
