Extended Marijuana Dispensary Hours on the Horizon in Durango!
Marijuana may be much more available in Durango, Colorado, if all goes as proposed.
On June 14, 2016, the Durango city council discussed the possibility of extending Durango medical and recreational marijuana dispensary operating hours to midnight.
Currently, a Durango ordinance, as well as the Land Use and Development Code (LUDC) rules, state that dispensaries can operate only between 8 am and 8 pm, though the Colorado state regulations allows marijuana dispensaries to stay open until midnight.
In an effort to raise more tax dollars and compete with the black market, the Durango city staff is proposing this LUDC amendment to the Planning Commission on June 27, 2016 and to the City Council on July 19, 2016. If the new ordinance passes, the change will take effect August 31, 2016.
