GREELEY, Colo. (AP) - The Town Board of Windsor has rejected an emergency measure that would have temporarily banned private marijuana clubs within commercial properties.
As an emergency ordinance, it needed five votes to pass. The Greeley Tribune reports only four members voted for it Monday. Board member Myles Baker was absent.
Supporters had wanted to keep private pot clubs from setting up shop this year until lawmakers and local communities figure out how to handle marijuana following the passage of Amendment 64, which allowed for limited recreational use of the drug under state law.
