Louisville OKs regulations for retail marijuana shops

Retail marijuana shops in Louisville won’t be allowed to give out free samples. That’s part of the new regulations the city council approved Tuesday, the Daily Camera reports.

The city’s new ordinance allows the two existing medical marijuana dispensaries to seek permission for the retail sale of the drug. A moratorium already in place will prevent any new retail pot shops from opening in the Boulder County town until the end of next year.

But the city council has taken steps to ensure Louisville won’t see an influx of marijuana retailers. The number of retailers allowed has been capped at four.
