County officials pondering pot center moratorium

Posted: Friday, November 30, 2012 3:00 am

Montrose County wants to put the brakes on marijuana retail center applications, at least until there is better direction from the state.

The county attorney has been directed to draft a resolution for a moratorium on such retail centers, and commissioners are tentatively set to discuss the draft resolution on Monday, though the agenda is subject to change.

“It’s just to buy us time so someone can’t come in and start an application process (for a center),” Commissioner Gary Ellis said on Tuesday. “We’re trying to get ahead of it and find out what we can do.”

    I think the DP is purposely misleading readers by insinuating that this Amendment to the State Constitution is " awaiting the governor’s signature".

    The Amendment passed and it is law, it needs no signature.....

    "if the fist story fails to get the desired public response, run it again. Run it over and over until the public falls in line'"

    It is evident that the successful propagandist must understand the true motives and not be content to accept the reasons which men give for what they do.
