Marijuana stores on 16th Street Mall? Two medical-marijuana dispensary owners apply for licenses

DENVER - Retail marijuana may soon make its appearance on Denver’s 16th Street Mall.

Two medical-marijuana dispensary owners have applied for licenses to open recreational stores on downtown Denver’s premier commercial corridor.

One of Denver’s 27 retail cannabis license holders — LoDo Wellness at 1617 Wazee St. — is close to the 16th Street Mall, but none so far has opened on the transit and pedestrian street.

State law allowed recreational sales to begin Jan.1. Business has been brisk at most sites, initially running at an estimated total volume of $1 million a day.

-- Our partners at the Denver Post interviewed Jamie Perino about her plans to open a downtown store by March 1.
