LOVELAND, Colo. (AP) - Medical marijuana centers in Loveland have been closing shop to meet a March 1 deadline set by voters who decided in November to prohibit the businesses.
The Loveland Reporter-Herald reported Sunday that most of the 11 businesses that were operating on Election Day are now closed and others are getting ready to do so in the coming days.
The ban prohibits medical marijuana dispensaries and commercial growing operations in the city. Voters in more than two dozen Colorado municipalities chose to ban medical marijuana centers in November.
Lawmakers approved regulations last year that gave
municipalities option of banning medical marijuana dispensaries.
