Summit County officials to discuss pot policy during Tuesday work session

County officials and law enforcement officers will discuss marijuana policy Tuesday during a Summit Board of County Commissioners workshop at the Old County Courthouse building in Breckenridge.

Summit County Sheriff John Minor alluded to the upcoming meeting last week following “Green Wednesday,” the first day of legal marijuana sales in the state.

Although the meeting is open-ended and no decisions will be made, Minor said he’d like to address how the county wants to define public versus private property, whether or not to regulate pot tourism and how to handle nuisance issues, such as odor complaints, and how to ensure there is consistency in enforcement throughout the entire county.

In addition to Minor, all three county commissioners and 5th Judicial District Attorney Bruce Brown are expected to attend the meeting.

The meeting also is open to the public and Minor encourages residents not only to attend the meeting, but also to participate.

“We’re going to need some public input,” Minor said. “We’re venturing into some uncharted territory and we’re on our own. We can’t rely on other states for guidance because we’re the first.”

The marijuana discussion is slated to begin at 9:05 a.m. in the County Commissioner’s meeting room at the Old County Courthouse, 208 E. Lincoln Ave. in Breckenridge.
