In front of a capacity, standing room only crowd, the Pueblo County Liquor and Marijuana Licensing Board unanimously approved an application by Plain Jane Organics to distribute medical and recreational marijuana at 4490 Bent Brothers Boulevard, #B1-B2 in Colorado City.

The chairman of the board, Severo DeLeon, listed the four criteria by which the board reviews applications:

-The applicant(s) is not prohibited by law from being a licensee

-The applicant(s) is qualified to manage the license in compliance with existing law.

-There is no adverse impact on the community.

-There are no false or misleading representations in the application.

DeLeon told those assembled the board does not view the application from a political perspective nor what is popular or unpopular and uses only the listed criteria to make a determination.

Valley resident Kathy Lesser spearheaded the valley response to the event using announcements on social media and telephone to draw concerned residents to the hearing. "I wanted the board to recognize the concern with the application was shared by a large number of valley residents, not just one or two people. I was very pleased with the number who attended and with the concerns expressed by those who spoke,"® said Lesser. "I was, of course, less pleased with the board's response to what I feel are very valid concerns,"® concluded Lesser. In addition to speaking, Lesser read a letter into the record from educator Kathy Dodge who urged the board to deny the application. While providing no specifics, Lesser did not rule out the possibility of further community action.
