Marijuana: Commercial pot shops prohibited in Douglas County as others consider bans

As of December 26, "retail marijuana stores" are officially prohibited in Douglas County. That means that six weeks after the legalization of recreational marijuana, any commercial activities involving pot are banned in DougCo. The county is the first in Colorado to enact this kind of ordinance -- and it made the move a full year before any recreational marijuana entrepreneur in Colorado will be able to set up shop.
