The Boulder City Council will have its first reading of an ordinance Tuesday that would allow dispensaries to sell marijuana seeds and items other than pot, among other things, reports the Daily Camera.

It's less change than the marijuana industry wants though. Councilman Macon Cowles, who supports easing restrictions, wants to see the city get rid of "zero tolerance" language for rule infractions and create a schedule for violations that would help businesses feel more secure.

"Our ordinance says that having a marijuana business is not a property right. It's a privilege. We say there's zero tolerance and no administrative review [when a license is revoked]. That makes someone feel pretty insecure, and that's not fair," Cowles told the paper.

The city is regarded to have marijuana regulations that are tougher than the rest of the state, the paper says.
