Earlier this week, SnowBrains reported on Vail, CO putting a vote to permanently banning marijuana retailers in the town of Vail. On Tuesday night the Vail town council voted 6-1 in favor of banning marijuana sales in Vail giving “first reading approval” to the ban. This vote was the first step in making Vail’s 2014 temporary ban on marijuana stores in Vail permanent. Final approval voting will take place on August 4th, 2015.
