Ft. Collins To Re-Address Colorado Medical Marijuana Dispensary Issue

Staff CMM - Tuesday, August 14, 2012
As November nears, voters in Ft. Collins will most likely be asked to once again address the issue of medical marijuana dispensaries in the city. A pro-medical marijuana group in Ft. Collins has gathered nearly 9,000 signatures – approximately 4,786 more signatures than required, to place a measure on the November ballot asking that the ban on medical marijuana dispensaries be lifted. Last year, voters passed the ban by a 53 to 47% margin. One former dispensary owner feels this was not a true reflection of how the general population feels and believes that by placing the measure on the November ballot, the measure will stand a greater chance of success, since this is a Presidential voting year. Those opposed to medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado believe that dispensaries contribute to the growing number of drug users among the city’s youth. Spokespeople for citizens against the dispensaries go on to say that it isn’t the dispensary itself they oppose as much as what it represents.

Medical Marijuana in Colorado Still a Subject of Controversy

Todd Davis - Saturday, August 08, 2009

Although a voter-approved amendment to the state constitution has deemed medical marijuana in Colorado legal, conflicts still arise. The City of Ft. Collins refused to pay a couple’s claim for over $200,000 after plants that were seized in a raid were left to rot and die.

The confiscated plants were returned to the couple over a year later when a judge ruled that the couple qualified as Colorado medical marijuana growers. The claim was later filed by the couple who stated the plants were dry, dead and moldy, but the Police claim they were not required to keep them alive because the couple did not have the proper permits. According to the couple’s attorney a civil suit will probably be filed in state court in an attempt to force the city to pay for the damages.
