  • Boards and Commissions: Taskforce on Marijuana



    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:   

    • Positive and negative impacts to public safety
    • Positive and negative impacts to public health
    • Positive and negative impacts to government
    • Positive and negative impacts to business
