There are still places in Colorado without dispensaries, believe it or not -- but fewer of them every month. In October, a medical marijuana dispensary license was granted to a store in Tabernash, and several other licenses were allotted in municipalities that have established dispensaries. Here's a closer look.
The first dispensary in Tabernash, Igadi, has obtained a medical marijuana license. There's no news yet about when Igadi might open its doors.
In Denver, Firehouse Organics obtained a medical license for a venue at 543 Bryant Street. An opening date has yet to be announced.
Green Dragon has purchased a license for a medical store at 424 Lincoln Street; it's not clear when the store will open.
The Green Solution has obtained another license for a venue at 5231 South Santa Fe Drive; no word on when it will open.
Native Roots also landed a couple more licenses on the list, including one in the southern area of the city at 2645 South Santa Fe Drive; it will be known as Native Roots South. There's also the newly opened Native Roots Longmont, 19 South Sunset Street in Longmont.
A Durango Organics outpost called DO Cortez will open at 1104 East Main Street in Cortez, ideally by early next week, according to Durango Organics staff.
Headquarters at 5739 Bueno Drive in Fort Collins received a medical license. A date to open hasn't been made public yet.
