VAIL — The Vail Town Council voted unanimously to extend its temporary ban on retail marijuana for another year in order to gather more information and observe other towns, such as Aspen, that have legalized retail sales.
The town had set a self-imposed July 31 deadline to make a decision on retail sales, but council members said the past year has raised too many questions with not enough time to answer all of them.
“I hate putting off decisions, but this is a new thing for our state,” said council member Dave Chapin. “However, we do need to make a decision within a year. Maybe we should also throw the question out there to people who come here to visit and see what they think.”
