FORT COLLINS – Voters in Fort Collins will have the chance to make another call about marijuana regulation come November.
Currently, voters must approve changes in city medical marijuana regulations. But on Tuesday, city councilors agreed to ask voters to get rid of that requirement, the result of a 2011 law that overturned the city’s ban on medical marijuana dispensaries.
The Coloradoan reports that officials say eliminating the requirement would help keep up with regulatory changes at the state level. The city hasn’t adapted its licensing rules to match the state’s because of the work involved in asking voters to approve all changes.
City officials say local marijuana businesses approve of the proposed measure.
