Boulder to vote on extending medical pot rules

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) – Boulder officials are expected to extend emergency regulations for medical marijuana dispensaries while they decide on permanent rules.

The Boulder City Council plans to vote Wednesday on extending the rules that expire at the end of March. The emergency rules that were adopted in November require dispensaries to operate more than 500 feet from schools and day care facilities. The emergency rules also limit the number of dispensaries within a 500-foot radius.

Longer term, the City Council is considering licensing requirements for dispensaries.

Denver already requires dispensaries to have an operating license.
