Marijuana: What happens to medical shops whose towns have banned recreational pot?


So far, 24 Colorado cities have banned recreational marijuana sales since the passing of Amendment 64. This is not a surprise, since most already had an ordinance prohibiting medical marijuana stores.
But what about those that have MMJ shops that now won’t be able to switch to recreational — like, for instance, Englewood, which briefly allowed dispensaries in 2009 but has since banned them. The three dispensaries that were grandfathered into that city have found it hard to stay open ever since. Denver Westword has the full story.
