Ambiguity in cannabis laws causes confusion for Colorado businesses. Legal purchasing begs the question, where exactly can consumers smoke?
The crime rate in Denver has significantly declined since legalization. Still, robberies target dispensaries due to large amounts of cash on the shops’ premises. Since cannabis is still federally illegal, the new outcry of injustice is directed at the Federal Reserve. Once cannabis commerce is embraced federally, there will be much less incentive for these crimes.
As cannabis commerce grows exponentially, ancillary business opportunities naturally appear. Food safety has been the talk recently; as the edible industry gains popularity, people want to know more about how products are infused and where ingredients come from…beyond the medicine they contain.
