The council has passed an ordinance, on first reading, extending the moratorium to October 31, 2018. As the Council discussed during the first reading of the ordinance, the extension to this date will allow the current, sitting Councilto make the necessary future determination on how best to address these facilities in the Village with the two obvious ends of the spectrum being regulate and allow facilities to banning the facilities outright. It is expected that this discussion will provide staff with direction as to the type of process the Councilwould like to go through to make this determination and the desired tim ing of said process 02-13-17 TC Work Session Page 15 of 21 TO: FROM: DATE: SUBJECT: MEMORANDUM Snowmass Village Town Council John Dresser February 6, 2017 Elitension ol Marijuana ("MJ") Moratorium, Ordinance No. 8, Series ol 2017 I. PURPOSE AND ACTIONS REQUESTED OF COUNCIL: II. SUMMARY OF PROJECT Prior to the expiration of the temporary MJ moratorium on March lS,2Ol7 , TOSV must enact an Ordinance adopting regulations for licensing of retail marijuana establishments, permanently opt out of Amendment 64 and prohibit retail marijuana establishments OR extend the moratorium to allow TOSV time to review, study :rnd analyze rhe impacts of MJ legalization and formulate regulations accordingly. III. BACKGROUND 02-13-17 TC Work Session An Ordinance extending the temporary moratorium prohibiting the establishment of any medical marijuana facility or any retail marijuana establishment in the Town of Snowmass Village. Council is requested to pass at First Reading Ordinance No. 8, Series of 2017 ar-s a consent agenda item to begin the process of extending the MJ moratorium for either the purpose ofcontinuing to not allow MJ establishments in TOSV or to consider regulatory legislation allowing MJ in TOSV. Staff has scheduled a full discussion of MJ for the February 13,ZOl7 work session and Second Reading ofthe Ordinance for February 21, 2017. This is because the moratorium expires March 15,2017 and an adopted Ordinance is not effective for l5 days after approval at Second Reading. So if First Reading was Feb. 2l with Second Reading March 6 there would be a gap between the expiration of the current moratorium and the effective date of Ordinance 8. On November 6, 2012, Colorado voters passed Amendment 64 to the Stale Constitution which provides that persons 2l years of age and older may legally possess and consume one ounce or less of marijuana without a medicai need, and for retail marijuana sales to be taxed and licensed similar to alcohol sales. Federal continues to make possession or use of MJ illegar. The past federal executive administration, through a memorandum issued by the US Attorney General, Page 16 of21 I\" APPLICABLEREGULATIONS Amendment 64 to the State Constitution. Colorado Retail Marijuana Code C.R.S. l2-43.4-lol et.seq. Colorado Dept. Of Revenue, Marijuana Enforcement Division's Permanent Rules Related to the Colorado Retail Marijuana Code V, DISCUSSION ITEMS: ALTERNATIVES AND IMPI,ICATIONS Should TOSV extend the current moratorium to allow time to review thc implications of Amendment 64 and State retail marijuana regulations and develop a regulatory scheme for TOSV? OR should TOSV prohibit retail marijuana establishments in TOSV? VI. STAFF RECOMMF]NDATIONS AND FINDINGS Staff recommends that Town Council extend the moratorium prohibiting retail marijuana establishments in TOSV to March 15,2019 in order to analyze and determine a course forward with input from the community. The date of March 15, 2019 is suggested as a time frame of knowing just how the federal government under the new ad,ninistration will react to state legalization of MJ. Possession of MJ under federal law is still illegal and such possession exists only because the previous executive had ordered the US Attorney General to cease enforcement of possession of MJ violations. Such order may be rescinded at any time by the new administration. Vigorous federal enforcement is a possibility at present. In the event the new administration should continue on the path of minimizing enforcement charted by the previous administration, TOSV will need time to prepare and enact regulatory legislation and consider tax options lor TOSV. 02-13-17 TC Work Session Page 17 of 21 minimalized enforcement of the MJ laws in states that enacted MJ regulatory legislation.
