Marijuana dispensary helps community

PALISADE, Colo. (KKCO) - Palisade may be known for its wineries, but it's also known for having the only medical marijuana dispensary in Mesa County.

And today the local business took time to give back to the community. Colorado Alternative Health Care has been making rounds in Palisade and doing special projects to make the town more welcoming and pleasant.

Today they planted flowers and painted. Their goal is to make small gestures within the city that will make a huge impact in the long run.

"We shouldn't be judged on what our business doe. We should be judged on the fact that we are a business that helps out the community,” says co-owner of CAHC Desa Loughman.

Loughman says they painted roofs and planted flowers in the Palisade Memorial Park.

There is a petition circulating in Mesa County in an effort to close down the dispensary. If it gets enough signatures it will be put on the ballot.
