Colorado Springs drops public building pot ban

COLORADO SPRINGS — The Colorado Springs City Council has scrapped a proposed ordinance that would have banned marijuana from city buildings because it did not distinguish between recreational and medical marijuana.

The council voted 6-3 against the ordinance on Tuesday. The ordinance would have banned pot from city buildings and reduced the penalties for people who brought pot into city facilities.

The Colorado Springs Gazette reports the council gave preliminary approval on Feb. 11, but council member Jill Gaebler backed out because she is concerned that people who need medical marijuana will be penalized if they have pot in city buildings.
