This is an interesting look at how two similar towns in Colorado, Gunnison and Crested Butte, are dealing with marijuana very differently. We find this sort of “diversity” all across the state, creating a patchwork of ordinances, moratoriums and outright bans. Figuring out what’s okay and what isn’t, presents a challenge for residents, businesses and law enforcement alike, but even more so for tourists and visitors. In many rural and mountain communities consumers and patients have little, if any, access to the regulated system.
In Colorado, two towns near each other have divergent reactions to their state’s legalization of marijuana.
