The City and County of Denver takes a collaborative approach to the management of marijuana, which includes multiple city agencies working together to address marijuana regulation, enforcement and education. This Denver Marijuana Information center provides links to information about marijuana business licensing, inspections and permits, news, and other important topics.
While Marijuana is legal in Colorado, it remains illegal under federal law
If you are a non-citizen, working in the marijuana industry could impact your immigration or citizenship status.

Applications for new licenses, renewals, transfers or modifications of existing licenses will be accepted Monday - Friday, 8:00am - 3:00pm.
Please bring your completed application package and all required documents to Denver Excise & Licenses.

Denver is promoting inclusion for people and communities that have been disproportionately impacted by the war on drugs as well as communities that are now being affected by the regulated marijuana industry.
