Marijuana: 33 retail pot stores now licensed in Denver

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.
