Gazette Premium Content Chicago landlord wants Colorado restaurant evicted for marijuana machine

EAGLE — A Chicago real estate developer wants to evict an Avon restaurant for displaying a marijuana edibles vending machine, claiming the media and social media attention damaged the company's reputation.

No pot products were in the Zazzz machine when it was on display at Montana's Smokehouse during a private party in April for its manufacturer, American Green.

Benchmark Investors sued Montana's owners claiming the event violated their lease. The Vail Daily (http://bit.ly/UNQHo7 ) reports that a judge held a two-day trial in Eagle this week but isn't expected to rule until the fall, after lawyers file written arguments.

A lawyer for the restaurant's owners, Tracy Ashmore, says the new landlord has an "elite" vision for the town near the Beaver Creek ski resort and has been trying other ways to end their lease.
