How 6 Colorado Municipalities Voted to Allow Recreational Marijuana Sales

Every Colorado voter facing a marijuana-related issue on their ballot in 2021.

Statewide, voters said no to Proposition 119, a proposed increase in the state’s retail marijuana sales tax, which would have helped fund out-of-school learning efforts. In Denver, voters rejected the initial Ordinance 300, which would have increased the city’s marijuana sales tax rate to 1.5%.

Colorado legalized marijuana for medical use in 2000 and recreational use in 2012, but the laws differ in each city and county. On this year’s ballot, six cities or towns voted on allowing the sale of recreational cannabis. Those locations ranged from some of Denver’s largest suburbs to locations on the plains.

Westminster and Lamar are likely to allow dispensaries based on current votes, while Mead, Brighton and Wellington repealed such measures. The vote in Golden was still too close to be called on Thursday morning.
