Windsor officials on Wednesday clarified the course of action the town board is expected to take toward the emerging marijuana industry.
In a single emergency ordinance vote slated for Monday’s town board meeting, leaders will likely place a temporary ban on any cannabis clubs that had hoped to set up in the community’s commercial property. That moratorium would be temporary, though a permanent ban could be on the horizon when all seven board members are present at a future meeting.
Staff and the town attorney had initially been under the assumption that the board called for two ordinances — one targeting private clubs and another preventing pot shops, grows and all other marijuana businesses from opening, town manager Kelly Arnold said Wednesday.
Only the former will be decided Monday.
No other marijuana enterprises or businesses will be allowed to set up in the meantime because a Colorado licensing structure does not exist — yet. The state is expected to begin issuing licenses by Oct. 1, which is also when communities must decide to what extent the industry will — or will not — be permitted.
