La Veta Moratorium on Marijuana

Published by at 9:34 pm under General Information

La Veta Town Trustees have allowed the expiration of the moratorium on marijuana sales within the Town. It was not seen as an indication of future approval, but most agreed that they did not want to rush t0ward approving a new proposed Ordinance  before Huerfano County has finalized or LaVeta has completed regulations and zoning ordinances IF, any marijuana retail sales should be approved soon. Neighboring Walsenburg, Colorado has already voted to approve marijuana sales and is drafting their regulations at this time. La Veta says, not so fast. So any new Ordinance vote to approve MJ sales was tabled until another public workshop could be held later in the week.

Public attendance was light and Trustees questioned the citizen’s lack of input and MJ weed sales effect on youth or on tourism. Tax revenue was also debated in relation to Town cost of regulating and enforcement. So, at least one more additional planning session before any final determination vote.
