Estes Park adopts moratorium on marijuana establishments within town limits

Marijuana may now be legal in Colorado following the last year's passage of Amendment 64 by Colorado voters, but Estes Park residents won't be seeing marijuana outlets springing up within town limits anytime soon. Read more

Heh.. I lived in Estes Park in the 60's till the mid 80's, there was so much grass there it isn't funny. More there than anywhere I have been in my life, including Hollywood. People also HOARDED grass because it is 40 miles to the nearest civilization... But more than anything I almost became an alcoholic there because booze is everywhere on every corner and at every event.

What a silly idea this was. Now in the middle of snowstorms (this is the rocky mountains folks) they will have people driving to right outside city limits (down one of two canyons) to get their grass.. AND THEY WILL.

Stupid stupid stupid... Put a shop right there by 7-11 and also include delivery services like most civilized places do these days. Someone will get hurt badly with this idea.. NO ONE needs to be on those canyon roads in the midst of winter if they don't have to be. But this really isn't about safety now is it?

I can't wait to see the 650 Million + dollars flow into Colorado and Washington State because they regulated marijuana. A very smart move! Perhaps with the Georgia Care Project will help the ridged state of GA move forward on the same issue of regulating marijuana like alcohol.

I am hoping that this is a result of the law that is being process for A64 and not because of ignorant and narrow minded thoughts on the cannabis plant.

Sooo, does that mean all the bars will be gone as well? Only seems correct. The voters of Colorado voted Yes on 64. Towns that refuse to go along with the new amendment to the state of Colorado constitution.... they get boycotted, banned, and made fun of.

Heck no! Town attorney Greg White almost single-handedly keep a few of them in business during the lean winter months before he sobered up!

Let see now, Colorado law trumps US law and now Estes Park law trumps Colorado law. Is it confusing or is it just me?

You're not confused. It's just your inner sheep advising you to shut up and do as you are told, and you are obeying.......
