were preparing to vote on Amendment 64, a proposal to “treat marijuana like alcohol” and allow recreational sales of cannabis in Colorado. The measure passed, of course, and the rest is history.
But Colorado is still making history with cannabis. Governor John Hickenlooper greeted the passage of 64 with this: “The voters have spoken, and we have to respect their will. This will be a complicated process, but we intend to follow through. That said, federal law still says marijuana is an illegal drug, so don’t break out the Cheetos or goldfish too quickly.” Part ofthat complicated process has been coming up with new regulations for the sale of marijuana, and then tweakingthose regulations; some new rules will take effect at the end of October. Others are already in place.
Under the original regulations, recreational stores could only be operated by owners who
already had a medical marijuana dispensary. But that requirement was lifted as of October 1, setting off another green/gold rush to the Rockies. Also on October 1, the frontier of Aurora was opened up for recreational sales. Although no stores were ready on that date, they soon will be.
Colorado keeps making history. Asked about legalized pot in a debate, Hickenlooper suggested that“anygovemorthatlooks at doing this before we see what the consequences are, I would view it as reckless.”
We’ve been tracking the consequences since before Amendment 64 passed, in the bimonthly Chronicle as well as in our weekly e-mail newsletter, Toke of the Town, and on our 24/7 news and marijuana pages at westword.com. That’s where you’ll find not just news stories and reviews, but also Ask a Stoner, which answers all of your burning marijuana questions, and the state’s most up-to-date directory of dispensaries. It’s not too early to break out the Cheetos.
