BRUSH, Colo. (AP) - Leaders in Brush are blocking a proposal to turn a former women’s prison into a marijuana grow operation.

City council members voted 4-3 on Monday night to keep a moratorium on pot through 2016 in the small Eastern Plains community.

Nicholas Erker of nearby Fort Morgan bought the prison in March and say it would be one of the safest places to grow pot. He told KMGH-TV (https://bit.ly/1q2b3qi ) that he’s disappointed that some council members didn’t take the time to educate themselves about the proposal.

He says he’s exploring other options to get the issue on November’s ballot and let voters decide for themselves.
