Louisville’s about-face on retail marijuana comes to a head this week

LOUISVILLE, CO -- It looked like a done deal. Louisville City Council early this month was on track to pass the first set of comprehensive recreational marijuana regulations in Boulder County, establishing buffers between pot shops and schools, limiting the stores' square footage and setting hours of operation. The council passed some tentative rules on first reading Sept. 3 and prepared to look at a more refined set of regulations at its meeting two weeks later.
