Colorado schools proximity to medical marijuana facilities mapped

As many as 56 medical marijuana facilities in Colorado are located within 1,000 feet of a school, according to an I-News analysis. The school addresses and licenses issued had more than 700 medical marijuana facilities statewide. Federal and state laws require a 1000 foot buffer. Now the government is cracking down as they recently did in California. The analysis used GIS.
