Castle Rock votes against medical pot dispensaries

April 5, 2011

Castle Rock residents Tuesday voted against allowing medical marijuana dispensaries from operating in the town, according to The Denver Post.

The vote means that the only dispensary in the city, Plans 4 Life, will have to close down by April 15. The town council last year voted in favor of banning the dispensaries in the town and Tuesday's vote upheld that decision.

Two new town council members were also voted into office and an incumbent also won another term. The town council will now vote on who will serve as mayor at a meeting next week.

Voters in Grand Junction have approved banning medical marijuana centers in the western Colorado city.

The Daily Sentinel reports that results from Tuesday's municipal election show that 56.5 percent of those voting supported the ban and nearly 42 percent opposed it.

Cities and towns across Colorado held elections Tuesday on a range of issues and offices. Grand Junction voters elected former Mayor Jim Doody for an at-large seat on the City Council. The Coloradoan reports that Karen Weitkunat was elected Fort Collins mayor.

A question on the Fort Collins ballot was whether to approve a "rank voting" system for future elections, meaning people will choose candidates by ranking them in order of their preference.
