Reports show Colorado Springs is likely to go another year without allowing recreational marijuana dispensaries within the city. Recently, the Colorado Springs City Council declined to put the recreational legalization question on the November ballot. Although the medical marijuana industry has been going strong in Colorado Springs for over a decade, the recreational sector has remained prohibited and several efforts to legalize rec sales have failed. The Mayor of Colorado Springs John Suthers is opposed to the recreational sale of marijuana as they claim recreational pot shops could even hurt the city’s chances of retaining the headquarters for the United States Space Command.
