With votes on local marijuana regulation happening tonight in Wheat Ridge and Pueblo, and Adams County granting its first retail licenses, some noteworthy changes in your local cannabis infrastructure might be taking place this week, as you can see in our calendar below.
There will be a vote on Pueblo's cannabis home-cultivation rules tonight at 7 p.m. on the third floor of Pueblo City Hall, located on 1 City Pl., Pueblo. The proposed regulations could severely limit where and how Pueblo citizens home-grow their cannabis and would strip certain rights of medical patients and caregivers, as well, one activist tells us.
Also happening today at 7 p.m.: The Wheat Ridge City Council is conducting a public hearing concerning tighter regulations on cannabis businesses within the city at the Wheat Ridge Municipal Building, located at 7500 West 29th Avenue. The proposed regulations would limit the number of dispensaries in Wheat Ridge to five and cultivation centers to three. It would also place stricter logistical constrictions on pot businesses.
Adams County will hand out recreational marijuana licenses to ten lucky recipients after its lottery drawing takes place tomorrow at 3 p.m. in Adams County Government Center, located at 4430 S. Adams County Parkway, Brighton. Around 1,500 applicants entered earlier this month after the county ended its moratorium on retail marijuana. Watch the drawing live on the county's YouTube channel.
