On April 7 the Pueblo County Commissioners passed Resolution 20-110 which for the most part freezes expansion of the marijuana industry with a few exceptions. Until January 1, 2021 only companies with existing licenses can make changes and those are very limited.

The resolution amends chapter 5.12 of the county’s code involving the regulation and licensing of liquor and marijuana establishments in an attempt “to correct loopholes around the marijuana moratorium currently in place” according to joint statement issued by commissioners

The statement continued, “As marijuana industry grows and evolves, we need to look at regulations and clean up those guidelines which sometimes provide loopholes in the code”

“Resolution 20-110 is aimed at refining and simplifying the county’s marijuana code in an attempt to “better balance the marijuana industry with the sometimes-competing interests of residents who are close or nearby those expansion premises”

Speaking with Denver’s Westword magazine Terry Hart said the “inspiration”: for Resolution 20-110 came from those who live nearby outdoor marijuana farms and complained about the odor. In 2019 Brad and Michelle Lisac came forward and wanted the 253-foot buffer increased to 1000 feet indicating their two small children got ill because of the odor.
