The Times-Call reports the moratorium also must pass a vote Dec. 17. It would stay in place until 90 days after the state develops marijuana regulations.

For years, Colorado has allowed limited use of marijuana for medical reasons. In November, Colorado voters approved an amendment allowing for recreational use. Regulations on commercial sales of marijuana without a doctor's recommendation still have to be written.

The drug is still illegal under federal law.

Lyons has three medical marijuana dispensaries.
