Lawsuit Challenges Loveland Pot Dispensary Ban

Three medical marijuana businesses and some patients have filed a lawsuit seeking to block the city of Loveland's new ban on medical marijuana dispensaries.

The lawsuit was filed Monday in Larimer County District Court, a day before the city's deadline for existing dispensaries to close.

A voter-approved amendment to the state constitution allows registered patients with certain medical conditions to use limited amounts of marijuana, but last year, state lawmakers gave cities the option of banning dispensaries. Voters in Loveland chose to do so in November.

The lawsuit argues Loveland's ban on dispensaries, including ones that were open before city voters banned them, is unconstitutional and will deprive patients of local sources of medical marijuana.

The city attorney didn't immediately respond to an e-mail sent after business hours seeking comment.
