Location Set for Event Recognizing First-Ever Legal Marijuana Sales to Adults; Denver Issuing Marijuana Retail Store Licenses Today

Amendment 64 campaign leaders to hold January 1 news conference at 3-D in Denver — a licensed marijuana retail store with on-site cultivation facility

DENVER — Leaders of the campaign that made marijuana legal in Colorado will gather January 1 at 3-D (Denver’s Discreet Dispensary) — a licensed retail marijuana store with on-site cultivation facility — to recognize the first-ever legal marijuana sales to adults. A news conference with the owner of 3-D will be held at 7:30 a.m. MT, and the first sale will take place at 8 a.m. MT. The store is located at 4305 Brighton Blvd. in Denver.

The Denver Department of Excise and Licensing began issuing the first local marijuana business licenses today (Friday), and 3-D is set to receive one. It received its state license earlier this week from the Colorado Department of Revenue.

The first customer on January will be Sean Azzariti, a Denver-based Iraq war veteran who can now legally use marijuana to alleviate the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Azzariti appeared in a Yes on 64 campaign television ad last year in which he discussed how legalization would benefit those suffering from PTSD — a condition that is not covered under Colorado’s medical marijuana law despite repeated efforts to add it.
