City Council approved placing ballot questions on the November 2021 election that would authorize new regulations permitting limited retail sales of marijuana to adults within the parameters of Amendment 64 and to impose an excise tax on the commercial sales.

On August 10th, 2021 City Council considered Council Resolution 2801, referring two questions to Golden voters pertaining to a change in City regulations to permit a limited number of commercial locations to seek licensing for the retail sale of marijuana and also regarding the enactment of a 6% excise tax on such sales. Resolution 2801 and the associated memo are available in the document library section. These questions for Golden voters will appear on the November 2nd, 2021 election ballot mailed to Golden voters by Jefferson County.

As a result of the provisions of Colorado’s Fair Campaign Practices Act, City staff and City Council are prohibited from actions that might encourage voters to vote yes or no on such a question, and are limited on any expenditures regarding the ballot measure. This Guiding Golden website only contains the factual information pertaining to Council’s action on Resolution 2801.
