Board OKs water to grow pot
Grower at meeting pleased with action
Marijuana growers in Pueblo County will have another option for water, after the Pueblo Board of Water Works OK’d selling outside of the city to grow pot.
The vote was 3-1, with board members Nick Gradisar, Tom Autobee and Jim Gardner in favor. Kevin McCarthy voted against. President Mike Cafasso did not vote.
“It’s business as usual,” Gradisar said. “We have some customers who want this use. It’s a good policy to move forward.”
The policy is premature, McCarthy said.
