Medical-marijuana business gets green light |

Medical-marijuana business gets green light | "EAGLE, Colorado — Eagle voters Tuesday approved a special-election question allowing Sweet Leaf Pioneer medical-marijuana dispensary to remain open by a vote of 634 in favor and 491 opposed.

A total of 1,125 ballots were cast in Tuesdays election. The winning margin was 56 percent in favor and 43 percent opposed.

The in-person voting was quiet, but more than half of the mail-in ballots sent out had been returned by Tuesday afternoon for Eagle's election.

Sweet Leaf Pioneer has been permitted by the town and open for business at a location on Chambers Avenue since 2009. In February 2011, the Eagle Town Board decided to ban medical marijuana dispensary and stipulated that the town's lone dispensary would have to close down by November. "
