In a narrow 2010 vote, Paonia residents approved a measure to ban medical marijuana dispensaries. This year, the question is whether to allow commercial marijuana sales in town. But after a decision by the Paonia Town Council yesterday  evening (Tuesday July 9), that issue won't be on a ballot this year. 

The Paonia Town Council on Tuesday evening voted to approve a "No Action" plan regarding Amendment 64, the Colorado constitutional measure that legalizes commercial marijuana activity in the state.
