Marijuana: 33 retail pot stores now licensed in Denver

Categories: Marijuana

Updated numbers below: After yesterday's Denver Bronco win, everyone in this city is plenty high. But for those who'd like to augment that euphoria, there are now 33 fully licensed retail pot shops in Denver. Late Friday, the Denver Department of Excise and Licenses updated its list of the establishments that have gotten both their state and city licenses, and although the pace has slowed a bit since the hectic days before recreational sales started on January 1, license-holders report that the process has been relatively slow and steady.

Update: Here are items about all 33 of the shops licensed by the City of Denver as of this writing, complete with photos, links and excerpts from those businesses critiqued by marijuana reviewer William Breathes. They're followed by the rest of this original post:

Number 33:

Colorado Alternative Medicine (CAM)

2394 South Broadway
Denver, CO 80210

An excerpt from William Breathes's September 2012 review: "For years, Colorado Alternative Medicine has been known as the place to pick up some of the state's best-grown meds. By December 2010, when I first visited the tiny South Broadway duplex, even growers were known to shop there between harvests. And based on my latest visit, little has changed."

Number 32:

Pink House Mile High

2008 North Federal Boulevard
Denver, CO 80211

An excerpt from Wax Jones's July 2013 post "Marijuana trimming isn't just an illegal trade anymore:" "When you first walk in to Megatron, the nickname for Pink House's grow facility, the beautiful scent of sativas and indicas can be a bit overwhelming. There are hundreds of small plants perched beneath flourescent lights throughout the hallways and thousands of plants spread out between four different rooms. Every day, the grow house goes through the same repetitive schedule: shuffle hundreds of plants from vegetative rooms to flowering rooms, water and fertilize plants, prune and check flowering rooms, harvest what is ready and send things to the trimmers."

Number 31:

walking.raven.jpg
Walking Raven

2001 Sout Broadway
Denver, CO 80210

An excerpt from William Breathes's November 2011 review: "Walking Raven has the distinction of being the first place I reviewed for Westword. After my last visit, I wrote that "Walking Raven feels like that hippie [sic] kid's hangout in high school." Now, two years later, the place feels like that high-school hippy has moved on and is now in his first post-dorm house at a pot-friendly liberal arts college in Vermont."

Continue to count down all 33 of the recreational marijuana stores licensed by the City of Denver so far.

I have grown it and will again, it's just not practical for me right now. It's a little bit of work but it's not that bad and hours are easier to come by than cash. I'm not asking for much, just that the prices drop 25% to pre-January 1st prices.

Of course not, we have too much regulation for that term to be completely accurate. But we can give the marijuana market the freedom to expand or contract based on desire for the product instead of limiting it (and trying to kill A64) with "sin" taxes and over-regulation.

Does anyone know how many medical marijuana dispensaries are open in Denver. Know it is hard to say because some of those listed here with retail licenses already had medical licenses.

Here's a recent quote from Rolling Stone from Ethan Nadelmann, chief drug policy wanker for the Drug Policy Alliance and pimp for billionaire George Soros, who funded both A64 and A20.

 

"Ethan Nadelmann acknowledged the uncomfortable transition that's now occurring. Those who have suffered the most in the War on Drugs and those who have struggled against it, he noted, may not be among those who profit from its conclusion. 'The capitalist forces at work in a prohibitionist market are violent and brutal," Nadelmann said, "but the capitalist forces at work in a legal market are even more brutal in some respects. We know that the people who may come to dominate this industry are not necessarily the people who are a part of this movement.'"

Thanks, Ethan, for bringing greed and corruption to the Colorado weed movement, er, oh, "industry", I  mean. While all the people who stood on the front lines fighting Drug War propaganda for the past 40 years are either dead, broke, or in jail.


The Soros/Monsanto agenda is the corporate takeover of cannabis. A64 voters were lied to and fooled -- BIG TIME!

I aid i read something about it. I disnt say i KNOW something about it. I would imagine one would need to show their recommendation in order to partake, just like with pot shops.

Just curious. How can West Hollywood have a pot restaurant? Only for those with a prescription? California only has medical marijuana.

ALL current rec. dispensaries were -- by regulation -- already licensed medical dispensaries.

@DonkeyHotay@Mozart99yes, but some of the already licensed medical dispensaries, like 3D, are choosing to go all retail.


Last year, the city tallied the total of MMJ dispensaries at somewhere over 200 -- but as a Denver audit determined, those numbers were pretty loose.

@DonkeyHotay @JustSayKnow  

Here is the first attempt of many in 2014 to force people into stores, and away from making their own decisions. First they demonize caregivers, then they will demonize all home growers. The Colorado Constitution says patients can designate a caregiver at any time, anyone 21 and over can assist anyone 21 and over with the cultivation, transport, transfer, etc., and adults can grow their own. But the government and the wannabe commercial weed lords don't like those freedoms granted by the Constitution, and will try every year to reduce those freedoms and force us into stores. Then, when they accomplish their goals, Monsanto will do the same to them, demonizing local weed stores/grow operations and make believe all sources other than them are dangerous. 


The headline should read;

Forcing patient into stores!! Taxes are more important than Constitutional rights, and patients aren't smart enough to designate their own caregiver.

Doesn't change the fact that ALL -- not some -- of the recreational centers had to be already licensed as a medical center, whether they still sell medical along with recreational, or are transitioning to recreational only. 


Even those profiteering greedy big $$ dispensary cartel pigs who are jumping to recreational only are still selling medical pot as they must liquidate their current stocks of medical pot -- they were only allowed to transfer a small portion to recreational on Jan 1 -- and they weren't allowed to even begin growing recreational pot in their warehouses until Jan 1, so they won't have a full recreational harvest for months.


So all the Medical centers are still there -- with some now also selling the same pot as Recreational, at 2x - 4x the price!!



HipTip: Lean the meaning and difference between the words Retail vs. Recreational. They aren't synonyms no matter how many illiterate stoner retards or government morons misuse them.


Medical centers sell pot RETAIL and collect retail sales taxes.


Recreational centers sell pot RETAIL and collect inflated retail sales taxes.



Cultivation OPCs / Grows -- whether they are Medical or Recreational -- do NOT sell pot RETAIL. They do transfer pot WHOLESALE to other centers, and it is that wholesale transfer that suffers the 15% excise tax.


MIPs / Infused Product Manufacturers -- whether they are Medical or Recreational -- do NOT sell RETAIL. They do transfer WHOLESALE products to other centers.



The categorical differentiation is Medical vs. RECREATIONAL, and separately Wholesale vs. Retail.



Hope that helps.

@DonkeyHotay Seriously dude you really need a more productive hobby than trolling Westword comments.  We get it, you hate A64.  It's passed, it's done, now move along.  If you don't want to pay premium prices at a regulated store THEN GROW IT YOURSELF AND SHUTUP ABOUT IT ALREADY.  No one even reads the drivel you post, and the fact that you invent fake profiles just to give yourself likes makes it even more pathetic.  You must be bitter b/c you were some two bit dealer who only had shwag and now no one will buy from.  Capitalism is great when it forces out inferior products.  If you can't get over it then maybe you should just move across the border to Kansas or Wyoming. Pot is still unregulated there.
