IamA CEO & Partner of one of the world's first legal marijuana stores (license # 37) in Denver, CO AMA!
I am one of the founders and CEO of one of the first state licensed medical marijuana businesses in Colorado. We have been approved for our "retail" (legal, non medical) licenses, and will be selling cannabis to anyone over 21 with a valid ID. I am also a cannabis business and regulatory consultant. I have been fortunate enough to put my 2 cents into how the law was shaped here in Colorado, both before and after legalization. I also love reddit and I'm using a throwaway for this. AMA.
Some proof, just got this last week. http://i.imgur.com/QWLPX2i.jpg
Doing this strictly for redditors entertainment/education not marketing my company (we already have more customers than we can serve) so avoiding social networks etc. happy to provide if asked though.
Edit: I appreciate the interest, but we are not hiring. & contextual clarification. A reoccurring theme is to question whether we are in the first set of "legal" cannabis stores in the world. Apparently some people feel this is a point of contention. To my knowledge no government in the modern era has licensed companies to sell "recreational" cannabis. Countries may tolerate it, but they have no legal framework to license and regulate it. That is the distinction I make between "legal" and "illegal".
tl:dr I own a weed store, starting today we can sell weed to anyone over 21
Day 2. More questions, why not? Just got home.
