Big photos and more below.
As of January 1, when recreational marijuana sales officially began, the City of Denver had licensed eighteen shops. The numbers have grown steadily since then. By our January 21 update, fifteen more shops had gotten the city's blessing, and in the couple of weeks since then, another four have won approval, bringing the current total to 37. They're listed here in the order of licensing, along with photos, videos, links and excerpts from those critiqued by Westword marijuana reviewer William Breathes. Count them down below.

Number 37:

Colorado Care Facility Inc.

5130 Colfax Avenue
Denver, CO 80220

An excerpt from William Breathes's March 2012 review: "The shop is small, with glass, aluminum and wooden cabinets forming an L-shaped countertop that takes up most of the bud bar. It's a clean space, well-lit and relaxing, with small stools for patients to pull up while taking a look at the buds. The center maintains a simple, mom and pop-ish feel."

Number 36:

The Kind Room

1881 South Broadway
Denver, CO 80210

An excerpt from William Breathes's November 2011 review: "The MMC wasn't fancy, but it wasn't sketchy or thrown together-feeling, either. Just clean, simple furniture and a flat, basic gray paint job. To the left when I walked in was a cream-colored massage chair like you sit in at the mall for ten minutes but never would actually consider purchasing unless you were really, really baked. Yeah, these guys bought one. (Talk about undercover stoners.) Also on hand was a dining-room table with chairs set up in another corner and out-of-place yet appropriately funky mirrored panels in part of the lobby ceiling."

Number 35:

discount.medical.marijuana.jpg
Discount Medical Marijuana

970 North Lincoln Street
Denver, CO 80203

Number 34:

MMJ America Uptown

2042 Arapahoe Street
Denver, CO 80205

Continue to keep counting down the 37 recreational marijuana shops licensed by the City of Denver so far.

It is also purported that Denver has purchased a fleet of 37 new expensive SUV's for compliance and enforcement...so Denver has no problem taking these businesses money (thousands and thousands for licenses)...but not allowing them to do business...and already using the funds/sales taxes for questionable expenses. I urge Denver residents to watch dog this closely and make sure the money is going to schools and infrastructure that it is supposed to be going to. I am not blatantly saying somebody is crooked in Denver...but something smells fishy.

The big question is why these shops have gotten approval and the others waiting have not? I know of one that is totally in compliance and jumped through every hoop the feds, the state and the city have thrown at them and they are still waiting and losing so much money every day that it is sickening. So whose dick to they have to suck to finally get approval?

Operating a recreational or medical marijuana center is a privilege, not a right.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Privilege_(legal_ethics)


"A privilege is a special entitlement to immunity granted by the state or another authority to a restricted group, either by birth or on a conditional basis. It can be revoked in certain circumstances. ... By contrast, a right is an inherent, irrevocable entitlement held by all citizens or all human beings from the moment of birth."

Memorable post, Angela. We're going to feature it in an upcoming Comment of the Day. Thanks.

They need to suck the filthy cock of regulation they begged for, and swallow graciously like the subservient tools that they are.

Remember - REGULATION WORKS!

@DonkeyHotay  business should be able to sell herb in a retail environment. not everyone wants to make a visit to a dealer's home just to buy a bag of weed. if the home dealer can drum up customers for himself, more power to him. quit hating on the retail. you do buy FOOD at the store, right asshole? Do you make your own peanut butter at home or do you buy it from the greedy food cartels?

@DonkeyHotay Tax evading, punks, funding organized crime. 


It won't be long till the state enforcement agency will have the man power to after them. Fortunately the prison time for tax evasion is bigger the light sentence drug pushers used to get.

@GuestWho  "By contrast, a right is an inherent, irrevocable entitlement held by all citizens or all human beings from the moment of birth."


So the 2nd Amendment really isn't a "right" then.

@HistoryRepeats ... only ostracized losers like you who have no friends, family or associates that grow or know growers would be lame enough to purchase overpriced, overtaxed, over-regulated warehouse schwag from the Greedy Big $$ Dispensary cartels.


Sucks to be you, don't it chump?


ps -- if peanut butter was being pimped at $5000+ per pound, only a fucktard like you would buy it retail instead of making your own.
