Aurora City Council members agreed Saturday to place marijuana on November ballots. Voters will decide whether the city should allow dispensaries.

Aurora now has a moratorium on pot shops, but it's going to expire next year. A bill passed by Colorado lawmakers allows towns to ban dispensaries but limits how long cities can ban them through moratoriums. Moratoriums can't go past July 2011.

A majority of Aurora voters favored medical marijuana in a 2000 ballot question that made medical marijuana legal.
