I'm sad to see so many voters decided that medical marijuana patients should'nt be able to safely obtain their medications. I guess if you have a headache the pharmacy is fine but god forbid you have cancer!
Medical marijuana businesses in Fort Collins have about two weeks to clean up their affairs and close their doors.
A voter-approved ban on marijuana dispensaries and grow operations in the city goes into effect Feb. 14.
Several businesses already have closed and have had their premises inspected by Fort Collins police and state regulators.
Others are making arrangements to move their operations to cities that allow marijuana businesses in the Denver-Boulder area.
Businesses have been scheduling appointments for inspection, said Sgt. Jim Byrne of Fort Collins police. So far, the inspections have gone smoothly.
In some cases, large amounts of marijuana and many plants were surrendered by the businesses, he said. The marijuana was seized and destroyed.
Dave Watson, owner of Kind Care Colorado, 6617 S. College Ave., said he has no interest in moving his shop. Most of the business’ product will be gone by the time it closes at 6 p.m. Feb. 14.
“I want to stay in good standing with the city and comply with all the rules,” he said. “After that, I’m just going to lay low and see what happens.”
