Although I'd like to see a federal legalization for recreational use, I also agree with Estes Park's decision. Estes Park is a tourist town with a lot of families, and unless there is a black market, I think banning weed is a good idea for the town.
A black market, of course. The town can't "ban" weed, it is now legal under the Colorado constitution, they do have the right to ban the dispensaries, the choice to miss out on tax revenue, and the ability to monitor the sales because they would be public is the towns choice to make.
I am also of the view that one of the problems with the pot shops, is that it's never done discreetly, always the big overblow pot leaves on the signs, the Bob Marley references, the weed suggestive names.
There should be an inclusion in the law that says if you have a pot shop, it should be done discreetly and quietly, and not be so in your face, and should limit the number of these shops so as not to over run any town with them as was seen between Loveland and Fort Collins.
The pot shops started to outnumber the Starbucks locations which also over run towns with to many locations.
While I am about legalization for adults over 21, I also agree with the towns decision for the sake of the tourist image, something that a large number of businesses depend on to survive, and being know as a weed town will keep some people away.
