The Montrose City Council is drafting a moratorium banning the commercial distribution of pot within city limits. City Manager Bill Bell says the moratorium will likely be voted on at the Nov. 20 regular session of the City Council.   Amendment 64 allows people 21 and older to possess up to an ounce of marijuana and grow up to 6 plants in their homes, also allows for marijuana to be taxed, as is alcohol.  Both Colorado and Washington State passed marijuana legalization amendments; the Colorado amendment could take effect early next year.   You can read more at www.watchnewspapers.com2012.
