Marijuana rules get new look in Pitkin County

December 30, 2011

ASPEN — Medical marijuana regulations are getting new attention in Pitkin County.

The Aspen Times reports that county officials will review local marijuana licensing regulations they shelved last spring (http://goo.gl/qiw9h).

The county drafted local regulations but didn't act on them, fearing a conflict with federal drug law.

Pitkin's inaction means marijuana dispensaries and growing sites can't receive state licenses, because local licenses are also required. The state Medical Marijuana Enforcement Division says local authorities must signal approval for a marijuana business before it can get a state license.

Pitkin County officials have scheduled a Jan. 17 work session to take a new look at local marijuana regulations.
