ALAMOSA — Without public protest or persuasion, the Alamosa County Commissioners (ACC) approved Alamosa County Ordinance No. 17 on Monday, officially sending the retail marijuana decision to the polls in 2014.
During the special meeting, the ACC voted unanimously to approve the ordinance after revising its first draft, which was presented to the board on Sept. 11, and holding a public hearing that drew no audience.
The ordinance prohibits retail marijuana sales and associated operations including manufacturing and cultivation in Alamosa County, and it will remain in effect unless voters decide retail marijuana is welcome next year.For the complete article see the 10-01-2013 issue.
