Photos: See all 33 recreational marijuana shops Denver has licensed so far

Numbers updated below: As of January 1, when recreational marijuana sales officially began, the City of Denver had licensed eighteen shops. But far more than that are in the pipeline, and city staffers have been working diligently to process them. The result: Fifteen more stores have been licensed by the city in the last three weeks, bringing the city's total to 33. Check out all of them here, listed in the order of licensing. Included are photos, plus links and excerpts from those critiqued by Westword marijuana reviewer William Breathes. Count them down below.
