The Colorado Legislature legalized marijuana delivery back in 2019, but the bill had built-in lag time — medical-marijuana delivery only in 2020, with recreational mariuana delivery allowed in 2021 — as well as a provision that a local government must opt in before any delivery would be allowed in its jurisdiction.
Local governments have been slow to act...but not entirely absent.
Three Colorado towns now allow medical marijuana delivery within their borders — Boulder, Longmont and Superior — and six Boulder County dispensaries are currently delivering marijuana, according to the state Marijuana Enforcement Division's license database. They are:
Helping Hands Herbals
1021 Pearl Street, Boulder
1750 30th Street, Boulder
The Dandelion by Native Roots
845 Walnut Street, Boulder
1909 Broadway, Boulder
2897 Mapleton Avenue, Boulder
Twin Peaks Dispensary
900 South Hover Street, Longmont
And while Denver continues to move slowly on approving delivery plans, Aurora is moving much faster: It recently okayed plans to allow recreational marijuana delivery next year.
