Reader: Who do pot shop owners have to blow in order to get licensed?

Our most recent update about licensed marijuana stores in Denver noted that 37 of them have received the city's blessing thus far. But many others are waiting, and while officials stress that everyone is being treated equally, one reader is feeling frustrated.

Angela Adams writes:

The big question is why these shops have gotten approval and the others waiting have not? I know of one that is totally in compliance and jumped through every hoop the feds, the state and the city have thrown at them and they are still waiting and losing so much money every day that it is sickening. So whose dick to they have to suck to finally get approval?
