On Tuesday, residents of Rifle voted on new council members and retail pot questions.

 

Rifle residents voted in four council members to its seven-member board.

 

The highest vote getters were: Sean Strode, Theresa Hamilton, Barbara Clifton and Joe Carpenter.

Voters were also asked if they want to allow Rifle’s five medical marijuana centers to start selling retail pot. The issue passed, but just barely. They were also asked if they want to levy sales tax on retail marijuana. The majority of voters did.
