Tiny Colorado town turns to cannabis

Developers are poised to break ground on a project that could make a tiny southern Colorado town one of the nation’s largest producers of legal marijuana. The town of Walsenburg this month formally closed a $1.33 million deal with a developer to build a 332-acre campus for cannabis growing, processing and distribution, with the marijuana to be trucked 160 miles north to consumers in metro Denver.
