When Colorado passed Amendment 64 last November, it made it legal for people to possess up to two ounces of cannabis for personal use.
However, the initiative also set out rules for where and how recreational cannabis shops and businesses can operate.
The new law allows recreational cannabis businesses to open in a variety of locations, including in brownsville, avon and recreational centers in Colorado Springs.
The law does not specifically address cannabis dispensaries, though the industry is expected to be one of the top priorities of the governor’s re-election campaign.
However this is a different state than the one that passed Amendment 66 in November.
In Colorado, where recreational marijuana is still illegal, the legal cannabis industry is estimated to generate $60 million a year in revenue.
As a result, recreational cannabis retailers are already opening shop.
That said, there are also some people in the cannabis industry who are opposed to the legalization of recreational marijuana.
In a new video produced by the Marijuana Policy Project, Colorado Cannabis Alliance Executive Director Mark Stedman talks about the lack of communication and misinformation surrounding the legalization movement.
Stedmen said that the public is getting confused about where recreational cannabis is coming from and the actual laws are being put into place.
“We’re in a state where there is a lack of clarity around where recreational will be coming from,” Stedmans said in the video.
“I think it’s important to let the states do the work that they’re supposed to do, and the people that are responsible for doing it are the states.”
