Palisade Considers Another Pot Ballot Proposal

· May 25, 2016, 4:12 pm

Palisade town trustees are considering presenting residents with an initiative on recreational marijuana, two years after a ballot proposal on the question failed by four votes.

The Daily Sentinel reports that at a meeting Tuesday, all seven trustees said they wanted to see draft language for a November ballot measure. A public-led initiative is in the works, but trustees would rather have their own to ensure the question is worded in a way that will be easiest to handle for the western Colorado town of 2,600 people.

Trustee Susan L'Hommedieu noted that in 2014, a number of ballots were missing the retail marijuana question. Voters passed a companion question that set up a taxing structure for retail marijuana that year, even though the sales question failed.
