Medical marijuana petition forces Broomfield council dispensary ban onto November ballot

The Broomfield City Council recently voted to ban medical marijuana dispensaries in the community rather than place the issue on November's ballot. That didn't sit well with MMJ advocates in the area, who launched a petition drive earlier this month. The goal: collect 1,300 signatures -- the number needed to make council members reconsider their decision or put the question up for a vote. And they succeeded.
