Retail Marijuana Petition Qualifies for November Ballot

Post Date:08/07/2020
A citizen initiative that would allow Littleton's existing medical marijuana dispensaries to become retail marijuana centers gathered enough signatures to qualify for the November ballot. The Littleton City Council will take up the issue and vote on whether to adopt the citizen initiative as submitted, or refer it to voters in November.

More than 7,200 signatures were submitted July 13 and the city clerk verified August 4 that there were 4,419 valid signatures by registered electors. If city council adopts the resolution on August 18, the following question will be placed on the November 3, 2020 ballot: “Shall existing medical marijuana center licensees in the City of Littleton be permitted to sell retail marijuana on and after January 1, 2021?” The city code currently allows four medical marijuana licenses.

The city clerk approved the petition form on June 5, 2020 and the group began collecting signatures. The final date to provide ballot language to the counties is September 4. If the ballot measure is successful, council will have an opportunity, prior to the effective date, to amend the city’s existing ordinance governing the sale of marijuana including evaluating zoning regulations that dictate the location of dispensaries in the city. The city council was briefed on the issue at the July 28 study session.
