Lawmakers bar Colorado cities from banning medical pot
DENVER – A House committee wants to bar Colorado communities from banning the use of medical marijuana.
The House Judiciary Committee said Monday communities already have the power to license and zone medical marijuana providers and a ban is unnecessary. Lawmakers said they aren’t sure if the laws apply to home rule communities like Denver.
The committee rejected a proposal that could have allowed veterans suffering from post traumatic stress disorder to be able to use medical marijuana, saying lawmakers shouldn’t be making medical decisions.
