During the November 2012 election, Fort Collins voters passed Initiative 301 allowing medical marijuana businesses in Fort Collins. Initative 301 placed a cap on the number of medical marijuana centers in Fort Collins, but allowed any businesses previously licensed in Fort Collins to exceed the cap. Applications were accepted from previous business owners during January 2 to April 2, 2013. Because the number of previous businesses applying for center licenses exceeded the cap, no applications for medical marijuana centers are being accepted. However, applications for optional premises cultivation (OPCs) and marijuana infused products (MIPs) are still being accepted. Please check this webpage frequently for updated information.
Also in November 2012, voters state-wide passed Amendment 64 allowing the recreational use of marijuana and establishing a framework for retail businesses. Amendment 64 gives local jurisdictions options to allow retail businesses or ban them.
Council adopted a temporary ban on first reading September 3 (second reading on September 17), which temporarily bans retail marijuana businesses until March 31, 2014 to allow staff adequate time to research options, conduct public outreach, and formulate recommendations. Retail marijuana will be discussed at Council Work Sessions in November and February 2014 to update Council on progress and finalize Council direction.
