As you probably heard, Denver Police, along with several agencies including the Aurora Police Department, the Marijuana Enforcement Division and Denver Department of Excise and Licenses, closed 8 Denver-area marijuana centers and stores on December 14, 2017. The Department of Excise and Licenses suspended 26 licenses including retail stores, medical centers, cultivations and manufacturing (all under related ownership). 13 people were also arrested on criminal allegations related to the sale of marijuana in excess of allowable amounts.
PLEASE be aware that enforcement actions are occurring. This was a concerted effort among multiple agencies over a year-long investigation period.
Poor training and lack of supervision of staff can result in the immediate closing of facilities, suspension of licenses, and criminal charges. Now is a great time to review your internal policies and procedures and ensure each staff member is aware of and adhering to company policy and following all laws and regulations.
