The Idaho Springs city council voted unanimously Monday to direct the city attorney to draft an ordinance that would enact a nine-month moratorium on new medical marijuana dispensaries.
The ordinance would limit Idaho Springs to its three existing dispensaries and would be similar to a statewide moratorium that ends July 1.
In addition, the council wants the ordinance to force local dispensary owners to grow 70 percent of their marijuana within the city, which would keep larger companies from coming in and having a grow facility in another area.
