UPDATE: Owner of Pure Medical marijuana dispensary, which is at the center of a dispute involving District Attorney Dan May, says he's willing to shut down his Rockrimmon area business.
Through his attorney, Thomas Choi told News First 5, if the people in the neighborhood don't want his medical marijuana dispensary in it's current location, he will move if they pay his moving expenses.
Colorado Springs City Councilman tells News First 5 he's still researching the impacts of filing a formal ethics complaint against District Attorney Dan May.
Paige has been an outspoken critic of May's phone call to a building lanlord, in which May asked for information on the owner of a medical marijuana disepnsary that opened up in his neighborhood.
May says he was requesting information as a private citizen, not as district attorney.
Paige has made clear he thinks May's actions teter on the brink of abuse of power, and at the very least appear to be an ethical violation.
Paige says he's been trying to get feedback from all sides on the issue. He's researching the process for filing an ethics complaint, but says he may not file a complaint if he feels he's made his point. He has also posted his view on the issue on his blog.
News First 5 will be interviewing Paige, May and the attorney for the marijuana dispensary involved. We will have much more later on newsfirst5.com and a full report on News First 5 at 10 tonight.
