A Second Reading And Vote On The Ordinance, Which Will Extend The Moratorium Officially Until Oct.

But there are people who understand them who can explain them to us and the community, and from there we can make more educated comments. The discussion came Monday as the council determines how to best move forward with its moratorium on marijuana facilities in Snowmass, according to a memo from Town Manager Clint Kinney and Town Attorney John Dresser. The moratorium prohibits the establishment of any medical marijuana facility or any retail marijuana establishment in the town of Snowmass Village, the memo states. The moratorium went into effect in September 2013, according to Dresser, and is currently set to expire March 15. On Feb. 6, the council unanimously voted to extend medical marijuana the moratorium during a first reading of the proposed ordinance. A second reading and vote on the ordinance, which will extend the moratorium officially until Oct. 31, 2018, is scheduled to take place at the next council meeting Feb. 21. Based on the discussion Monday, Kinney said he fully expects the council to vote in favor of the extension at the second reading. What a moratorium does is it buys you some time, Kinney said to The Aspen Times after the work session. And we just bought ourselves some more time, but we need to make a decision. At Mondays work session, the council made clear that educating itself on cannabis, from seed to sale, is step one, Mayor Markey Butler said.
