Avon nixes medical marijuana shops

AVON, Colo. – The idea of pot shops hasn’t taken root in Avon.

On Tuesday, town council officially banned medical marijuana dispensaries in Avon.

The law prohibits business licenses for medical marijuana shops. The ordinance also requires medical marijuana patients to comply with state licensing requirements in order to possess or use medical marijuana legally in Avon.

No medical marijuana shops are currently operating in town.
