FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) – Medical marijuana businesses in Fort Collins must close by Feb. 14.

City voters approved a measure Nov. 1 to ban commercial marijuana businesses including dispensaries and growing operations. The city has set a Feb. 14 deadline for the business to close.

The Coloradoan reports that city officials are still sorting out the process for stores to cease operations.

Some marijuana growers need direction on how to remain a caretaker for up to five patients. Also, businesses need to know what to do with marijuana plants and products that remain after a dispensary closes.

Officials say licensed dispensaries may withdraw their state license applications and move to another location where dispensaries are allowed.
