Colorado businessman proposes growing pot at a former prison

DENVER (AP) -- Pot could be going to prison.

Colorado businessman Nicholas Erker wants to grow and sell legal marijuana at a former women's prison in the town of Brush. Erker tells the Denver Post the site is ideal, given its security, utility lines and isolation. Of course, the old prison is surrounded by fences up to 30 feet high, topped by razor wire.

The Brush city council is set to take public comments on the proposal on Monday.
