First wave of recreational pot businesses in Denver get their papers
The first wave of 14 businesses and 17 growers received licenses today, The Associated Press reports, the latest in a years-long process to legalize the recreational drug in the state. It was cleared for personal use more than a year ago, but it's taken longer to get businesses up and running due to a permit process that involves inspections and security requirements. More licenses are expected to be doled out as state officials approve additional applications from businesses that hope to capitalize on the policy change. The legalization of marijuana remains a hot-button topic in the US.
