Carbondale To Lower Cap On Pot Production To Curb Smell

The Garfield County town of Carbondale is looking to lower the town's cap for marijuana grow operations in hopes of addressing complaints about the smell.

The Glenwood Springs Post Independent reports that the Carbondale Board of Trustees has voted to cut back on the number of licenses for recreational grows in the town from five to three.

The town has already issued four licenses and all four of those businesses will be grandfathered in to the new policy. However, if one of those businesses fails, the town will reduce the number of licenses.

Carbondale has issued two licenses for medical marijuana grow operations. One more will be allowed.

Carbondale officials have received a number of complaints that some of the marijuana operations are smelly and close together.
