Cañon City is taking its first steps toward retail marijuana sales.
The planning commission met Thursday night to talk about retail marijuana sales, specifically where it would and wouldn't be allowed within the city.
Right now medical marijuana businesses are allowed in the commercial and industrial zones.
The city is considering allowing retail shops in the business district. That allows the shops to be out in the open-- with added security.
Cañon City council hasn't said yes or no to allowing recreational marijuana sales just yet. But the city attorney says the council seems to be leaning toward allowing it.
The city council will meet Wednesday to look over the zoning proposals.
