The Pagosa Springs Town Council addressed the issue of retail marijuana signage at its meeting on Jan. 21 and approved the use of an externally visible green cross by The Green House, the town’s first licensed recreational marijuana retailer located at 270 E. Pagosa St.

Council’s action on Thursday followed its Dec. 17, 2015, approval of The Green House’s license, subject to restrictions required by the town ordinance providing that “no exterior signage shall use the word ‘marijuana,’ ‘cannabis’ or any other word, phrase, symbol, acronym or combination of letters or numbers commonly understood to refer to marijuana.”

At the time of council’s approval, the licensees noted the likelihood of a follow-up request for signage in addition to the sign then allowed, which was limited to the business’ name.
