In Aurora, the question of whether to allow medical marijuana dispensaries is going to voters.
Aurora City Council members agreed Saturday to place marijuana on November ballots. Voters will decide whether the city should allow dispensaries.
Aurora now has a moratorium on pot shops, but it's going to expire next year. A bill passed by Colorado lawmakers allows towns to ban dispensaries but limits how long cities can ban them through moratoriums. Moratoriums can't go past July 2011.
A majority of Aurora voters favored medical marijuana in a 2000 ballot question that made medical marijuana legal.
