1st Colorado city bans pot shops

SUPERIOR – The Boulder County town of Superior is the first in Colorado to ban medical marijuana shops after a state law last week allowed such actions.

Superior town council members voted 6-0 Monday to ban dispensaries. Other towns, including Vail, are moving quickly toward banning marijuana dispensaries.

Gov. Bill Ritter signed a law last week that allows cities to ban marijuana shops, or make moratoriums permanent. Before that, many cities banned pot shops through moratoriums or by denying business licenses, but state law was silent on whether that was permitted.

Medical marijuana advocates have vowed to challenge local dispensary bans in court.
