In 2010 when Colorado enacted HB 10 – 1284, the goal of it’s creators was to force close 80% of dispensaries. What happened after the law was passed? 1100+ dispensaries applied and paid hefty license fees to sell pot in Colorado and be put on stand by to wait for their real license to be delivered or not. CO HB 10 – 1284 also enabled Colorado Cities and Counties to ban commercial cannabis shops, and that’s exactly what happened in Loveland, Colorado. The town had a vote on whether to ban dispensaries, and like many communities in Colorado, the voters of Loveland chose to lock the pot shops up for good. The number of marijuana dispensaries in Colorado is going down, but the amount of patients needing the medicine is rising.
Mountain Medical Leaf is one such dispensary in Loveland Colorado which is having a blow out / give away sale to move their inventory on to patients. Jason Specht is the unofficial spokesman for an advocacy group Loveland Association of Wellness (LAW) who has been following the marijuana industry in Northern Colorado. Encouraging patients to buy product is extremely challenging, and those sales aren’t garnering much income for the dissolving shops, Specht said. “The problem is that these are shark-infested waters,” Specht said. “Everyone knows we’re in a tough spot, so they can get the product very cheap.” Specht said dispensary owners will sell their product even if it’s not at a very competitive price. “It’s just a matter of ‘some money is better than no money,’ ” he said. “That’s where we’re at with that.”
