Pueblo County Commissioners delay marijuana decision

Posted at 9:22 PM, Jan 09, 2020

PUEBLO — Pueblo County Commissioners are holding off on deciding where businesses can grow marijuana.

They want to do more research into the possibility of new rules.

The regulation at hand is a text amendment to zoning restrictions that would expand the buffer distance between an outdoor marijuana grow and the nearest residential home.

Brad Lisac has been working to stretch the buffer distance between an outdoor marijuana grow and the nearest residential home to 1,000 feet, it's currently 250 feet.

Lisac doesn't like their decision to move the meeting but won't stop fighting.

"I'm going to get with them, be more aggressive, talk to them in their office meet at every meeting they will so-called have and make it myself, it is not over with," Lisac said.

Commissioners will discuss this issue again March 12.
