Currently, Loveland does not allow cannabis retailers within its borders, which prompted petitioners to propose a November ballot initiative that would allow voters to decide whether to allow the regulation and sale of cannabis in the city. Petitioners had 90 days to collect a minimum of 2,888 valid signatures from registered electors to place the issue before voters, and the lawsuit arose following allegations that Garcia provided misinformation. Then, a judge determined Aug. 24 the court did not have jurisdiction to hear a lawsuit brought against Loveland, Colorado City Clerk Patti Garcia by supporters of a petition for a ballot initiative to allow cannabis dispensaries in the city. However, the city clerk’s office has agreed to review more signatures collected during the initial 90-day period for the upcoming ballot.
