Recreational marijuana is legal in Colorado. However, the town of Vail has put a temporary ban on marijuana sales in 2014. Vail is now trying to make that temporary ban permanent.
On Tuesday night, the Vail Town Council will consider the first reading of a permanent ban on marijuana sales in Vail. That ban could be potentially overturned by the same town council in the future.
Colorado passed Amendment 64 and legalized recreational marijuana in 2012. This amendment gives towns and counties the ability to ban retail marijuana operations if desired. Very few towns and counties have chosen to do so.
Much of Vail’s accommodations do not currently allow marijuana smoking on property.
As of right now, it appears that Vail population is generally ok with marijuana sales, the town council is for the ban, and town businesses are for the ban.
“We have had to ask that people not just leave it [marijuana] lying around, though.”
“We ask our guests to use common sense and be respectful.” – Mike Connolly, general manager of Triumph Mountain Properties in Vail
