Pot shops closed despite lawsuit

Loveland’s medical-marijuana dispensaries were closed Tuesday, despite the filing of a lawsuit that seeks to keep at least three of them open.

Loveland City Attorney John Duval said he has not received notice of a hearing to consider the lawsuit’s claim that the city’s ban on dispensaries is unconstitutional.

Attorney Robert Corry Jr. filed a complaint in Larimer County District Court late Monday, seeking a temporary restraining order that would allow the dispensaries to remain open. Corry claimed the city’s ban on dispensaries “is unconstitutional, because it unduly burdens patients and caregivers.”

Meanwhile, Loveland police said all the dispensaries in the city were shuttered, which means the owners avoided jail time or heavy fines.

Voters in November passed a marijuana-dispensary ban by an overwhelming majority. The vote gave the dispensaries until Tuesday to close their doors.
