Important Information to Consider This New Year




NewYearsEveTipsyTowColoradoAccording to CDOT, each year in Colorado, nearly 200 people are killed in alcohol-related crashes and 25,000 drivers are arrested for DUI. This figure hits a little closer to home this year as our community is still recovering from the loss of one of it’s most spirited members, Jenny Kush who was killed by a drunk driver earlier this year.

With this in mind, we wanted to take a moment to remind everybody that, like last year, and despite the widespread sharing of this incorrect information, AAA’s Tipsy Tow program is NOT available in Colorado. At the bottom of this post, we’ve listed some alternative options for you to consider.

Colorado has a lot to celebrate as we step in to 2014 and take historic steps into the future of cannabis legalization. With so much excitement going on, it can be easy to get distracted and forget that we still have a lot of work to do. As the new year is upon us, it’s important to encourage everyone not to drink and drive, but we must also keep in mind that Colorado has implemented some pretty serious THC DUI laws to be aware of.

Colorado Licenses First Legal Recreational Marijuana Businesses In United States History


The Denver Post has reported that as of today, Colorado has become the “first state in U.S. history to issue special licenses for recreational marijuana businesses”.  We’ve provided a list below of the 136 licenses issued, but please note that not all of these stores will be open for retail business by January 1st.

The state Marijuana Enforcement Division mailed out licenses to 136 marijuana stores today. Many (but not all) of those stores, if they also receive approval from their local governments, will begin selling legal cannabis on January 1st. The Marijuana Enforcement Division also issued 31 marijuana-infused products licenses and 178 marijuana-cultivation facility licenses.

Stay tuned for more information, links, addresses and other info… we will update this post as we learn more.


If you own or work at a shop that is planning to open on January 1st, please contact us to confirm this and we will add you to our list of New Year’s Day shops!

Colorado Medical Marijuana Sales Double to $329 Million


Marijuana Business Daily has reported that medical marijuana sales in Colorado have risen 50% during the latest fiscal year, exceeding even the most optimistic projections.

“Dispensaries reported record revenue of $329 million from July 1, 2012, through June 30, 2013, according to the latest data from the Colorado Department of Revenue. That’s a healthy increase from $219.3 million in the previous 12-month period. (Note: The numbers include all products sold at dispensaries, including edibles.) Sales in Denver alone hit $152 million, accounting for about 46% of the statewide total.” Read the full story at Marijuana Business Daily (photo provided by
