Colorado city closes medical marijuana dispensary
CENTENNIAL, Colo. – There’s a new battle over medical marijuana in Colorado.
The city of Centennial is being sued by medical marijuana patients after the city closed a marijuana dispensary last month.
The city decided to close CannaMart, a dispensary that sold pot to people with medical approval, after passing a ban on dispensaries within city limits. Other cities, including Dillon, have also banned dispensaries.
But the marijuana patients say Centennial cannot close a dispensary because Colorado voters decided to change the state constitution to allow medical marijuana.
City officials have not reacted to the threat of a lawsuit.
