[h2]Denver May Regulate Medical Marijuana Dispensaries[/h2]
The Denver City Council is considering an ordinance that required medical marijuana dispensaries to obtain business licenses. It's part of a proposal to regulate the dispensaries in Denver.
As part of the ordinance, shops that sell marijuana-laced food products would have to follow health regulations. Owners would also have to undergo criminal background checks.
Denver City Councilman Charlie Brown said he believes it's important to regulate medical marijuana dispensaries because they are providing a medical service. "We're going to regulate their hours, their locations, in terms of schools. Not only in terms of schools, but also in terms of spacing. Do we really want five dispensaries on the same block?" said Brown.
The Denver City Council Safety Committee reviewed the proposed rules on Wednesday. That proposal has not gone before the full city council.
