Southern Colorado Town May Allow Marijuana Sales

Manitou Springs may be the last hope for area residents who want to walk into a store and legally buy pot.

Early indications are that City Council may be interested in allowing retail marijuana stores, said Manitou Springs Mayor Marc Snyder.

It would make the historic, west-side town one of the only municipalities in southern Colorado to have shops that sell marijuana for recreational use. Colorado Springs City Council voted this week to opt out, and El Paso County opted out months ago. Other neighboring cities, including Woodland Park, Green Mountain Falls, Fountain and Monument also have opted out of retail marijuana sales.
