AURORA, Colo. — Aurora lawmakers approved marijuana delivery on an 8-2 vote during a City Council meeting Monday night.

Monday’s vote was the first on the marijuana delivery plan, which must pass a second round of voting before being officially implemented.

Councilman Dave Gruber and Councilwoman Francoise Bergan were the only ones to vote against the plan.

If approved, the change would allow Aurora residents to have marijuana delivered to their homes by licensed dispensaries between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m.

Daily deliveries would be limited to 1 ounce of marijuana, 8 grams of marijuana concentrate and 80 10-milligram servings of THC.

The plan also would limit delivery for the first three years, only granting permits to social-equity transporters who prove that they’ve experienced legal trouble from since-overturned marijuana laws or have lived in a disadvantaged area.
