How-to docs and more below.
Earlier today, we shared a guide to marijuana licensing hearings from Smart Colorado, an anti-pot group that apparently wants to slow down the process as much as possible. But what about entrepreneurs eager to take part in this new industry? What do they do?

Denver's answers to these questions can be found in a how-to graphic and fact sheet on view below, along with updated information about the number of businesses in a range of categories that have applied for licenses to date. See it all below.

Here are the facts and figures for license applications from the office of Denver mayor Michael Hancock, as updated this week:

Stores -- 121

Grows -- 161

Infused Product Manufacturing -- 26

Testing -- 4

Total = 312

It should be noted that some operations are applying for more than one license. According to the mayor's office, 152 business entities have filed for these 312 licenses. As for the number of shops that will likely be open on January 1, the city's estimate remains twelve, but that's definitely subject to change.

Look below to see a three-page graphic spelling out the steps businesses need to take in order to be licensed. It's a not-terrific photocopy, but if you use the Scribd enlargement tool, you should be able to read everything. That's followed by a city of Denver fact sheet about licensing.

*** $100,000 Pot Shop Robbery ***


In a town where weed is medically legal and quite easy to find, bad guys still find incentive to rob and plunder marijuana dispensaries.


Case in point:


A Valley Village pot shop was robbed by two big guys yesterday afternoon. The suspects reportedly got away with a whopping 40 pounds of bud:


That could be $100,000 worth of green gold using a $2,500-a-pound wholesale price.


Suspects described as "heavy set" men pulled it off, police said.


A lieutenant added that "they were gone when we got there." The police official indicated that the pair used "intimidation" to get the weed.


"No weapons were seen," he said.

Matt the rfid tag will follow the plant through its life and end up at the dispensary. The tag will not go to the customer. The states way of tracking..

Better have those BigBrother RFID tracking tags on every plant and every bag of pot, or face enforcement and shutdown from the Marijuana CRIMINAL Enforcement Division.

@DonkeyHotayAre you sure they weren't DOR agents? Did they head straight to the donut shop afterwards?

@Timberline HerbalClinic ... how will the MED goons know and enforce the 1 (one) ounce limit, and the exclusion of those under 21, if they don't also track he SALE and PURCHASER?

@Matt Gunderson ... all marijuana users will be secretly tagged with a subcutaneous nano-RFID chip enabling the Drug Cops to track your purchases, use and travel.


Be afraid ... be very afraid.

@DonkeyHotayLOL! will that be the next new crime in Colorado? Possession of one ounce of mj WITHOUT AN RFID CHIP? Welcome to the New World Order. This is just more Cannabis Control, not Cannabis Freedom!

@DonkeyHotayThere's a question that greedy Timberline Herbal Clinic won't be able to answer. He will say they won't track it. Will they really let someone just get back in line and buy another ounce?

Or deny the DEA MMED access to ALL customer records when their license is threatened?
