COLORADO: With legislation pending on whether to ask Denver voters to approve a 5 percent tax on retail marijuana sales, the Denver City Council on Monday will consider setting a host of rules and regulations for the new industry.

The council meets Monday afternoon in a special committee to settle 39 issues to set up the framework of retail marijuana in the city.

The issues to be discussed include:

• Should the city allow only outright conversion of medical-marijuana dispensaries into retail stores and not allow co-location or shared space?

• Should public hearings be required for conversion or co-location of dispensaries into retail stores?

• Should the city set specific hours for the retail shops to operate?
