Colorado voters in 2013 approved Amendment 64 to the state constitution regarding the use and sale of marijuana. Counties and cities now may choose to allow the operation of marijuana cultivation facilities, marijuana testing facilities, marijuana product manufacturing facilities and retail marijuana stores; or to prohibit such businesses through the enactment of local ordinances. With the new state law governing the sale of marijuana in Colorado, the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners is establishing a taskforce to study marijuana.
The taskforce will be charged with helping county staff identify and report on the impacts of marijuana establishments.
The county commissioners are seeking individuals interested in serving on the task force who can help staff identify and report on impacts of marijuana establishments:
The Marijuana Task Force recommends that the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners permanently prohibit marijuana establishments within unincorporated Jefferson County. See the document for further detail and discussion.
The effects and remediation of systemic institutional bias regarding regulated marijuana in Jefferson County, Colorado. See the document for further detail and discussion.
