Marijuana Industry Permits

Marijuana establishments or businesses involve unique operations which can create significant life safety and fire hazards. As such, all establishments or businesses engaging in these activities shall be required to obtain all applicable annual operational permits from the Denver Fire Department.  All operational permits and (if applicable) construction permits must be obtained prior to an Excise and License Business License inspection sign-off.   

Flammable gas (i.e. Butane) oil extractions, where the gas is released to the atmosphere, are strictly prohibited by the Denver Fire Code.  Violations are subject to criminal penalty including fines and incarceration.
