Carbondale trustees put pot regs in their pipes, don’t inhale

CARBONDALE — As the town edges closer to the Oct. 1 deadline when local recreational marijuana regulations are supposed to be in place, the Board of Trustees have scheduled a special work session meant mainly to work on those regulations.

Because it is a work session, meaning no formal notice was issued about the meeting, the trustees cannot make any formal decisions at the work session tonight about a proposed 15-page ordinance outlining the town’s regulation of a planned retail marijuana industry.

The packet of information prepared for the trustees for tonight’s meeting includes a summary of the state’s regulations for the industry, which were announced Sept. 9, as well as maps showing the different proposed “zones” for pot shops. The packet is available on the town’s website ( under the “Popular Pages, Board of Trustees Meeting Packet” button.
