Photos: Boulder's first recreational pot shop celebrates its grand opening

Last week, we told you about the soft launch of Terrapin Care Station, Boulder's first recreational marijuana store. But days after our post, TCS celebrated its grand opening in style, with a ribbon-cutting courtesy of Boulder City Councilman Macon Cowles, seen here with owner Christopher Woods, and guest appearances by plenty of cannabis industry heavyweights. Photographer Ken Hamblin was on hand to capture the scene. Check out a sampling of his shots below, and click to see the complete Terrapin Care Station opens in Boulder slide show.
