The Larimer County Board of County Commissioners voted to pause its issuance of new cannabis business licenses in unincorporated Larimer County until early next year.
The board decided unanimously in a meeting last week to issue a moratorium on any new cannabis cultivation facility or dispensary opening until Jan. 15, 2023.
The current resolution allows for only two of each type of license, including retail and cultivation, in the unincorporated area, with both licenses already issued. Officials referred to the possibility that one of those licenses “may become available soon.”
“Rather than get in a position of responding and this process of issuing a license before we had the chance to look at the resolution in a more comprehensive way, they decided it would make sense to put a pause on it,” said Lesli Ellis, Larimer County community development director. “We anticipate taking a look at these regulations and rules later on in the year, and it would be potentially an opportunity to look at the whole process for how licenses get issued.”
