Ridgway Has New Restrictions On Marijuana Grow Operations

Marijuana Plant

Recreational and medical marijuana facilities are allowed in Ridgway. The town has one hybrid storefront that sales medical and retail pot. A town ordinance passed last month puts new restrictions on marijuana grow operations in Ridgeway.

KVNF's Laura Palmisano speaks to the town's Mayor John Clark about the new rules. 

Clark says the ordinance limits the number of cultivation facilities in town to two and the number of plants each can have to 3,600. He also says grow operations need a special permit to discharge agricultural runoff into the town's wastewater treatment plant.

A commercial grow operation has yet to open in Ridgway.
