Grand Junction discussing medical marijuana rules

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. – The Grand Junction City Council is discussing how to handle medical marijuana under a new state law that gives them options.

The law gives local governments the authority to ban marijuana growers and dispensaries, regulate them or ask voters what to do.

The council will hold a workshop on the topic Monday. No final decision is expected.



Some council members say they want to hear what residents think but have doubts about holding an election because of the cost.

Mayor Teresa Coons says she’s waiting for Monday’s meeting before forming an opinion.
