Dacono pot shops stop selling before deadline

DACONO, Colo. (AP) - Three marijuana dispensaries in Dacono (dah-KOH'-noh) have stopped selling marijuana ahead of a deadline to close.

The shops had until the end of business Monday to close after the City Council voted in June to ban pot shops.

On Wednesday, the City Council will take up a ballot measure that proposes reversing the ban. Council members could rescind the ban or schedule an election so voters can decide.

The three marijuana dispensaries in town also have sued to reverse the ban, but a judge decided not to block the deadline for them to close.

The Times-Call reports (http://bit.ly/Z6ciIE) Dacono Meds is now looking at selling products besides marijuana. MaryJane's Medicinal says it will reopen if the dispensary ban is repealed. A phone number for Green Medicals wasn't working Monday.
