I've said it before, and I'll say it again:  I don't use marijuana.  That said, I've always been fascinated by the legalization of pot in Colorado, and all the hurdles and pitfalls that come along with it.

One such issue has been centered right here in Larimer County.  Although recreational marijuana shops are now legal in Colorado, Larimer County has yet to allow any.  But that may soon change.

The county planning commission on Wednesday is scheduled to consider a request from Choice Organics, one of two medical marijuana businesses in unincorporated Larimer County, to open a recreational marijuana store and grow operation.

The facility would be at 813 Smithfield Drive southwest of the intersection of Mulberry Street and Interstate 25 in a commercical area outside Fort Collins city limits. It would be in the same building as Choice Organic’s medical marijuana operation.

Personally, I'm a fan of progress, especially when that progress creates jobs and economy-stimulating revenue.  On the other hands, I can understand resident not wanting to raise families near pot shops.

This one's a tough call.  What do you think about recreational pot shops in Larimer County?  Let us know in the comments below...
