Denver's Pot License Process Often Hazy

Denver, CO  -- On a wall inside Frank Quattrone's office hangs a framed white sheet of paper. It's nothing fancy, just a few printed words and numbers, with a faint official seal in the background. What it represents, though, is more remarkable. Quattrone's business, Pure Medical Dispensary, is one of the first stores in Denver history to be specially licensed to sell marijuana, and that piece of paper proves it.
"It didn't look like I expected it to look," Quattrone said of the license, which arrived last week after weeks of negotiating city hall bureaucracy. "It didn't have any bling to it."Denver officials have received 259 applications for medical-marijuana dispensary licenses. After a lengthy review process, the city has issued three.Pure Medical, on Bannock Street south of downtown, and Walking Raven dispensary on South Broadway were issued licenses Wednesday. A third dispensary, Sunnyside Alternative Medicine on West 38th Avenue, was issued a license Friday.The Denver City Council approved an ordinance this year requiring all dispensaries in Denver to have a special license  becoming one of the few cities in the state to require such approval. Those that applied for a license before March 1 were allowed to stay open while their applications were processed.The ordinance also set up operating rules for dispensaries. Penny May, the director of Denver's office of Excise and Licenses, said no one has been ticketed for violations, such as being open without applying for a license or allowing on-site consumption.

Montana MMJ
We are moving along quite well here in Montana. Just last month we signed up a new patient, it only took 3 weeks to get their card from the state in the mail. When I got my card at the end of 2009 it took 8 weeks. We have finally hit the 10,000 patient mark! That is in a state of less than 1 million people!!! LoL!!!! There will be a clinic at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds April 2, 2010. It is free to attend the event!! Greene Acres Caregiver will be there to offer potency tested cannabis and certified clones.
