The stores, located at 3054 Larimer Street and 777 Canosa Court, were closed by the DOR's Marijuana Enforcement Division on July 22, with notices of license suspensions posted on both storefronts.
Botanico dispensaries reopened in time for the Labor Day weekend, with this September 4 post on the company's Instagram page: "And we are ready to CELEBRATE and say F*ck 2020 with the biggest weekend we have had in 10 years!!!"
The post doesn't mention why the stores were closed, but an agreement between the DOR and Botanico indicates that the state was investigating the dispensaries for violating marijuana law subsections related to payment of taxes and licensing fees.
The deal nullifies both the suspension order and any need for a disciplinary hearing, according to the DOR documents. Both the DOR and Perrone declined to comment on the suspension or subsequent agreement.
