Kevin King  filed the suit this month in Mesa County District Court, charging that Palisade officials adopted an ordinance permitting just one dispensary in town in violation of the state constitution and local laws. The suit also alleges that the lone license was awarded without a bidding process, and that town officials colluded with the eventual licensee, the Colorado Alternative Healthcare Medical Marijuana Center.

The report suggests that   ……… “If the lawsuit succeeds, it could become harder for Colorado municipalities to limit the number of dispensaries they allow. But an official with the Colorado Municipal League told the Grand Junction Sentinel that Colorado law allows municipalities to prohibit or limit marijuana and dispensaries.”
