El Paso County to tackle medical marijuana issue

El Paso County Commissioners continue to grapple with the issue of medical marijuana.

A Public Hearing on proposed land use regulations and revisions to the Land Development Code will be held tomorrow, Aug. 3, at 9 a.m. The meeting will be held in the Hearing Room of the Regional Development Center at 2880 International Circle.

The last session of the state legislature passed House Bill 1284 which requires medical marijuana dispensing facilities to obtain state and local licensing approval and to be in compliance with all local zoning codes.

Several communities in Colorado have since banned medical marijuana dispensaries.
