Colorado regulators deny licenses to pot shops targeted during last year's federal raid

Share/Save/Bookmark

DENVER — State regulators want to shut down four Colorado medical marijuana businesses that were among the targets of federal raids last year.

Documents released Tuesday allege the businesses failed to maintain required video surveillance, sold marijuana after-hours and kept incomplete records. Letters denying the licenses say at least one of the businesses grew more than the standard number of plants without documented justification.

The state documents do not mention the Nov. 21 raids on more than a dozen sites, which came in the weeks before Colorado allowed sellers of recreational marijuana to open for business.

An inspection in December found at least one of the businesses failed to activate the state's mandatory marijuana inventory tracking system.

The businesses have 60 days to request a hearing regarding the license denials.
