Reader: Dacono is so known as "Marijuana Town!"
In a post about a potential medical marijuana retail ban in Dacono, William Breathes riffed on a local councilwoman's concern about the community becoming known as "Marijuana Town" if dispensaries are allowed to remain there. That prompted one reader to defend the councilwoman, sorta, by referencing a similar prohibition in Fort Collins that the MMJ industry is trying to overturn.

William Breathes, I can assure you that many Fort Collins patients consider Dacono to be "Marijuana Town" now that MMC's are banned in Fort Collins. MMC's as far south as Boulder are seeing an increase in sales primarily due to the Fort Collins ban. It seems like Dacono politicians didn't have a problem with MMC's when the MMC's were mainly serving the local community, but now that the MMC's are attracting a bunch of college kids from Fort Collins, they want to shut them down. I'm not surprised.
