Photos: See all 37 recreational marijuana shops Denver has licensed so far

As of January 1, when recreational marijuana sales officially began, the City of Denver had licensed eighteen shops. The numbers have grown steadily since then. By our January 21 update, fifteen more shops had gotten the city's blessing, and in the couple of weeks since then, another four have won approval, bringing the current total to 37. They're listed here in the order of licensing, along with photos, videos, links and excerpts from those critiqued by Westword marijuana reviewer William Breathes. Count them down below.
