DENVER – Mayor Michael B. Hancock released the following statement today regarding the successful launch of retail marijuana sales in Denver:
“I am proud of Denver's responsible and balanced implementation of Amendment 64. Over the past year, our city agencies have worked hard to collaborate with our partners and listen to so many in our community to establish thoughtful regulations. We also focused on educating residents and visitors of those laws. We saw the fruits of that labor today.
