COLORADO – Another effort to bring the sale of recreational marijuana to Palmer Lake has failed, yet voters have approved of implementing a 5% sales tax if the products are sold there in the future.

Ballot question 2A asked voters to approve the tax with the aim of increasing town tax revenues by $500,000.

Palmer Lake 2A – Recreational Marijuana Sales Tax

Yes 923 63%
No 545 37%


As for the sale of recreational marijuana, this was the third time the measure went before voters. Ballot question 2B sought to amend municipal code. It would have allowed only two recreational marijuana stores in town.  One, or possibly both, would have been located inside the former bowling alley along State Highway 105 just inside Palmer Lake’s southern boundary with Monument.
