Retail marijuana sales are due to start in Colorado at the beginning of the year. The lack of licensed retail facilities is causing increased concerns though. Complicated regulations are binding applicants, with only 12 licensed retail facilities expected to be open in all of Colorado come January 1.
The lack of retail facilities combined with the growing anticipation surrounding the firsts legal sales of cannabis in the U.S., the few stores that are ready for business may not be as ready as they’ll need to be. Lines are expected to form around the blocks, and product shortages are already being discussed.
Colorado will be the first state in the U.S. to have retail sales of marijuana, how the role-out evolves could affect how other states approach their sales. This could have further ramifications on canna-business from other states hoping to open their doors.
