NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED BY THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE TOWN OF MEEKER, COLORADO, THAT: Section I. A new Chapter 8.29 is hereby added to the Meeker Municipal Code to read in full as follows: Chapter 8.29 Medical Marijuana Section 8.29.101 Purpose and Applicable A. Although the possession and use of marijuana is and remains unlawful under Federal law, Article XVIII, §14 of the Colorado Constitution provides an exception to prosecution under state criminal laws when marijuana is possessed and used for medicinal purposes by a patient who has been diagnosed with a debilitating medical condition, and by the patient’s primary caregiver. The Colorado Constitution does not, however, contain any provision for the lawful sale or distribution of marijuana to patients. The Colorado Medical Marijuana Code clarifies Colorado law regarding the scope and extent of Article XVIII, §14 of the Colorado Constitution, and at the same time authorizes a regulatory scheme for the retail sale, distribution, cultivation and dispensing of medical marijuana known as a “Medical Marijuana Center,” and further authorizes licensing mechanisms known as an “Optional Premises Cultivation Operation” and a “Medical Marijuana-Infused Products Manufacturers’ License. C.R.S. §12-43.3-106, specifically, authorizes the governing body of a municipality to “vote to prohibit the operation of medical marijuana centers, optional premises cultivation operations, and medical marijuana-infused products manufacturers’ licenses”. The purpose of this Chapter is to prohibit, within the Town of Meeker, such medical marijuana facilities as provided for by the Colorado Medical Marijuana Code. B. This Chapter is necessary to protect and is enacted in furtherance of the public health, safety and welfare of the Town and its inhabitants. C. This Chapter is intended to apply and shall apply to any and all property, businesses, conduct, activity or business entities operating within the Town of Meeker, whether stationary, mobile, or virtual. D. This Chapter and the prohibitions herein are intended to apply and shall apply in any and all zoning districts within the Town of Meeker. Section 8.29.102 Definitions. As defined in this chapter, unless the context otherwise requires, the following terms, phrases, words and their derivation shall have the meaning given herein. When not inconsistent with the context, words used in the present tense include the future, words in the plural number include the singular number, and words in the singular number include the plural number; and every word importing the masculine gender only may extend to and be applied to females and things as well as males and every word importing the neuter gender only may extend to and be applied to natural persons as well as things. The word “shall” is always mandatory and not merely directory: “Amendment 20” means Article XVIII, §14 of the Colorado Constitution, adopted on November 7, 2000. “Colorado Medical Marijuana Code” means Part 1 of Article 43.3 of Title 12 of the Colorado Revised Statutes, C.R.S. §12-43.3-101, et seq. “Debilitating medical condition” means a condition described in Article XVIII, §14 (1)(a) of the Colorado Constitution. “Medical marijuana” means marijuana that is grown and sold pursuant to the provisions of the Colorado Medical Marijuana Code and for a purpose authorized by Article XVIII, §14 of the Colorado Constitution. “Medical marijuana center” means a person licensed pursuant to the Colorado Medical Marijuana Code to operate a business as described in C.R.S. § 12-43.3-402 that sells medical marijuana to registered patients or primary caregivers as defined in Article XVIII, §14 of the Colorado Constitution, but is not a primary caregiver, and which a municipality is authorized to prohibit as a matter of law. “Medical marijuana-infused product” means a product infused with medical marijuana that is intended for use or consumption other than by smoking, including but not limited to edible products, ointments, and tinctures. “Medical marijuana-infused products manufacturer” means a person licensed pursuant to the Colorado Medical Marijuana Code to operate a business manufacturing medical marijuana-infused products, and which a municipality is authorized to prohibit as a matter of law. “Medical use” means the acquisition, possession, production, use, or transportation of marijuana or paraphernalia related to the administration of such marijuana to address the symptoms or effects of a patient’s debilitating medical condition, which may be authorized only after a diagnosis of the patient’s debilitating medical condition by a physician or physicians, as provided Amendment 20. “Optional premises cultivation operation” means a person licensed pursuant to the Colorado Medical Marijuana Code to grow and cultivate medical marijuana for a purpose authorized by Article XVIII, §14 of the Colorado Constitution, and which a municipality is authorized to prohibit as a matter of law. “Patient” means a (natural) person who has a debilitating medical condition. “Person” means a natural person, partnership, association, company, corporation, limited liability company, or organization, or a manager, agent, owner, director, servant, officer, or employee thereof. “Physician” means a doctor of medicine who maintains, in good standing, a license to practice medicine issued by the state of Colorado. “Primary caregiver” means a natural person, other than the patient and the patient’s physician, who is eighteen years of age or older and has significant responsibility for managing the well-being of a patient who has a debilitating medical condition. Except, as provided by C.R.S. §25-1.5-106(3)(b)(I), the act of supplying medical marijuana or marijuana paraphernalia, by itself, is insufficient to constitute “significant responsibility for managing the well-being of a patient”, for purposes of determining a “primary caregiver”. Section 8.29.103 Medical Marijuana Centers, Optional Premises Cultivation Operations, and Medical Marijuana-Infused Products Manufacturer – Prohibited Uses. A. The operation of medical marijuana centers, optional premises cultivation operations or medical marijuana-infused product manufacturer or any sale facility, business or operation related thereto within the Town limits, which may be authorized under the Colorado Medical Marijuana Code, are hereby prohibited and unlawful. B. It shall be unlawful and a violation under this Chapter for any person to establish, operate, cause to be operated, or permit to be operated within the Town’s limits, and within any area annexed into the Town after March 15, 2011, a facility, business or any other operation under the Colorado Medical Marijuana Code as a medical marijuana center, optional premises cultivation operation, or as a medical marijuana-infused products manufacturer or any sale facility, business or operation related thereto. Section 8.29.104 Cultivation and Sale of Medical Marijuana – Prohibited A. As authorized by C.R.S. §12-43.3-103(2)(a), no person shall cultivate medical marijuana within the Town’s limits, unless such person does so as a registered patient or licensed primary caregiver, pursuant to and in accordance with C.R.S. §25-1.5-106. B. As authorized by C.R.S. §12-43.3-103(2)(a), no person shall sell medical marijuana within the Town’s limits, unless such person does so as a licensed primary caregiver, pursuant to and as provided by C.R.S. §25-1.5-106. Section 8.29.105 Patients and Primary Caregivers – Affirmative Defense – Limitation. A. Nothing in this Chapter shall be construed to prohibit, regulate, or otherwise impair the medical use of marijuana by a registered patient or the provision of medical marijuana by a licensed primary caregiver for his or her patients, provided that any such patient or primary caregiver is doing so in accordance with all applicable provisions of Amendment 20; the Colorado Medical Marijuana Code, as amended: C.R.S. §25-1.5-106, as amended; and the Town’s ordinances, and in accordance with any applicable rules and regulations promulgated under state law.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED BY THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE TOWN OF MEEKER, COLORADO, THAT: Section I. A new Chapter 8.29 is hereby added to the Meeker Municipal Code to read in full as follows: Chapter 8.29 Medical Marijuana Section 8.29.101 Purpose and Applicable A. Although the possession and use of marijuana is and remains unlawful under Federal law, Article XVIII, §14 of the Colorado Constitution provides an exception to prosecution under state criminal laws when marijuana is possessed and used for medicinal purposes by a patient who has been diagnosed with a debilitating medical condition, and by the patient’s primary caregiver. The Colorado Constitution does not, however, contain any provision for the lawful sale or distribution of marijuana to patients. The Colorado Medical Marijuana Code clarifies Colorado law regarding the scope and extent of Article XVIII, §14 of the Colorado Constitution, and at the same time authorizes a regulatory scheme for the retail sale, distribution, cultivation and dispensing of medical marijuana known as a “Medical Marijuana Center,” and further authorizes licensing mechanisms known as an “Optional Premises Cultivation Operation” and a “Medical Marijuana-Infused Products Manufacturers’ License. C.R.S. §12-43.3-106, specifically, authorizes the governing body of a municipality to “vote to prohibit the operation of medical marijuana centers, optional premises cultivation operations, and medical marijuana-infused products manufacturers’ licenses”. The purpose of this Chapter is to prohibit, within the Town of Meeker, such medical marijuana facilities as provided for by the Colorado Medical Marijuana Code. B. This Chapter is necessary to protect and is enacted in furtherance of the public health, safety and welfare of the Town and its inhabitants. C. This Chapter is intended to apply and shall apply to any and all property, businesses, conduct, activity or business entities operating within the Town of Meeker, whether stationary, mobile, or virtual. D. This Chapter and the prohibitions herein are intended to apply and shall apply in any and all zoning districts within the Town of Meeker. Section 8.29.102 Definitions. As defined in this chapter, unless the context otherwise requires, the following terms, phrases, words and their derivation shall have the meaning given herein. When not inconsistent with the context, words used in the present tense include the future, words in the plural number include the singular number, and words in the singular number include the plural number; and every word importing the masculine gender only may extend to and be applied to females and things as well as males and every word importing the neuter gender only may extend to and be applied to natural persons as well as things. The word “shall” is always mandatory and not merely directory: “Amendment 20” means Article XVIII, §14 of the Colorado Constitution, adopted on November 7, 2000. “Colorado Medical Marijuana Code” means Part 1 of Article 43.3 of Title 12 of the Colorado Revised Statutes, C.R.S. §12-43.3-101, et seq. “Debilitating medical condition” means a condition described in Article XVIII, §14 (1)(a) of the Colorado Constitution. “Medical marijuana” means marijuana that is grown and sold pursuant to the provisions of the Colorado Medical Marijuana Code and for a purpose authorized by Article XVIII, §14 of the Colorado Constitution. “Medical marijuana center” means a person licensed pursuant to the Colorado Medical Marijuana Code to operate a business as described in C.R.S. § 12-43.3-402 that sells medical marijuana to registered patients or primary caregivers as defined in Article XVIII, §14 of the Colorado Constitution, but is not a primary caregiver, and which a municipality is authorized to prohibit as a matter of law. “Medical marijuana-infused product” means a product infused with medical marijuana that is intended for use or consumption other than by smoking, including but not limited to edible products, ointments, and tinctures. “Medical marijuana-infused products manufacturer” means a person licensed pursuant to the Colorado Medical Marijuana Code to operate a business manufacturing medical marijuana-infused products, and which a municipality is authorized to prohibit as a matter of law. “Medical use” means the acquisition, possession, production, use, or transportation of marijuana or paraphernalia related to the administration of such marijuana to address the symptoms or effects of a patient’s debilitating medical condition, which may be authorized only after a diagnosis of the patient’s debilitating medical condition by a physician or physicians, as provided Amendment 20. “Optional premises cultivation operation” means a person licensed pursuant to the Colorado Medical Marijuana Code to grow and cultivate medical marijuana for a purpose authorized by Article XVIII, §14 of the Colorado Constitution, and which a municipality is authorized to prohibit as a matter of law. “Patient” means a (natural) person who has a debilitating medical condition. “Person” means a natural person, partnership, association, company, corporation, limited liability company, or organization, or a manager, agent, owner, director, servant, officer, or employee thereof. “Physician” means a doctor of medicine who maintains, in good standing, a license to practice medicine issued by the state of Colorado. “Primary caregiver” means a natural person, other than the patient and the patient’s physician, who is eighteen years of age or older and has significant responsibility for managing the well-being of a patient who has a debilitating medical condition. Except, as provided by C.R.S. §25-1.5-106(3)(b)(I), the act of supplying medical marijuana or marijuana paraphernalia, by itself, is insufficient to constitute “significant responsibility for managing the well-being of a patient”, for purposes of determining a “primary caregiver”. Section 8.29.103 Medical Marijuana Centers, Optional Premises Cultivation Operations, and Medical Marijuana-Infused Products Manufacturer – Prohibited Uses. A. The operation of medical marijuana centers, optional premises cultivation operations or medical marijuana-infused product manufacturer or any sale facility, business or operation related thereto within the Town limits, which may be authorized under the Colorado Medical Marijuana Code, are hereby prohibited and unlawful.

Section 8.29.104 Cultivation and Sale of Medical Marijuana – Prohibited A. As authorized by C.R.S. §12-43.3-103(2)(a), no person shall cultivate medical marijuana within the Town’s limits, unless such person does so as a registered patient or licensed primary caregiver, pursuant to and in accordance with C.R.S. §25-1.5-106. B. As authorized by C.R.S. §12-43.3-103(2)(a), no person shall sell medical marijuana within the Town’s limits, unless such person does so as a licensed primary caregiver, pursuant to and as provided by C.R.S. §25-1.5-106. Section 8.29.105 Patients and Primary Caregivers – Affirmative Defense – Limitation. A. Nothing in this Chapter shall be construed to prohibit, regulate, or otherwise impair the medical use of marijuana by a registered patient or the provision of medical marijuana by a licensed primary caregiver for his or her patients, provided that any such patient or primary caregiver is doing so in accordance with all applicable provisions of Amendment 20; the Colorado Medical Marijuana Code, as amended: C.R.S. §25-1.5-106, as amended; and the Town’s ordinances, and in accordance with any applicable rules and regulations promulgated under state law. B. Notwithstanding the provisions of this Chapter, it shall not be unlawful and it shall be an affirmative defense to criminal prosecution under the provisions of the Meeker Municipal Code, including, but, not limited to M.M.C. Title 9, the Offense Ordinance of the Town of Meeker, for a medical marijuana patient or primary caregiver to possess, use, or obtain medical marijuana, when such medical marijuana patient or primary caregiver is fully and currently compliant with all applicable state laws, regulations, and registration or licensing requirements concerning medical marijuana, provided that such medical use of marijuana is not in plain view of, or in a place open, to the general public; does not occur on property owned or possessed by the Town; or possess medical marijuana or otherwise engage in the use of medical marijuana in or on the grounds of a school or in a school bus, or as otherwise provided by Amendment 20 or C.R.S. §25-1.5-106.
