Grand Junction voters back medical pot ban
April 6, 2011
DENVER (AP) – Voters in Grand Junction have approved banning medical marijuana centers in the western Colorado city.
The Daily Sentinel reports that results from Tuesday’s municipal election show that 56.5 percent of those voting supported the ban and nearly 42 percent opposed it.
Cities and towns across Colorado held elections Tuesday on a range of issues and offices. Grand Junction voters elected former Mayor Jim Doody for an at-large seat on the City Council. The Coloradoan reports that Karen Weitkunat was elected Fort Collins mayor and the Gazette reports that Richard Skorman held a narrow lead over Steve Bach in the Colorado Springs mayoral race.
A question on the Fort Collins ballot was whether to approve a “rank voting” system for future elections, meaning people will choose candidates by ranking them in order of their preference.
