Town of Bayfield holding forum on marijuana sales

Monday, Jan. 29, 2018 11:41 AM

The Town of Bayfield will hold an open forum to discuss possibly lifting the ban on medical and retail marijuana sales in town limits.

The forum is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 30 at Bayfield Town Hall at 1199 Bayfield Parkway.

Town codes currently prohibit the licensing or operation of marijuana cultivation facilities, marijuana product manufacturing facilities, marijuana testing facilities and retail marijuana stores and related uses.

The town also prohibits medical marijuana centers, optional premises cultivation operations or medical marijuana infused products manufacturing businesses. At its Dec. 19 regular meeting, the board of trustees voted unanimously to reevaluate the prohibitions. Ignacio also bans retail and medical marijuana sales, while they are legal in Durango, Pagosa Springs and other towns throughout the state.
