Pot moratorium extended

The Board of County Commissioners unanimously passed a resolution to extend its moratorium on retail marijuana until Jan. 1, 2016. The extended moratorium may be reduced or pushed to an even later date based on the boards discretion. The decision to move the original date from Feb. 1 2015 to Jan. 1 2016 was due in part to the upcoming legislative session where it is anticipated the Colorado General Assembly will be addressing taxing rights imposed on retail shops by cities and counties. The extension will also give county staff adequate time to draft any preliminary regulations regarding retail marijuana in unincorporated Jeffco.
