7 Colorado Towns to Issue Adult-Use Licenses

License Application Details Vary by Location — Find Out If, When & How You Can Apply

Coming out of the November 2020 election, cities and towns across Colorado are opening licenses for adult-use cannabis.

Buena Vista has already opened and closed their application process, but these other locations are still in progress:

In the Denver Metro Area:

Lakewood and Littleton both allow only existing medical dispensaries in good standing to apply for adult-use licenses.

Broomfield is still in the process of developing rules and regulations. The current expectation is that the application process will open sixty days from May 3.

Fort Lupton is expected to release information in late March.

On the Western Slope:

Paonia rules and regulations are still pending, but the current structure includes a cap of one dispensary per commercial block, which equates to six dispensaries. That detail is subject to change as polices are expected to be implemented and applications released sometime in May.

Cedaredge approved their rules and regulations in February, including a cap of two adult-use and two medical dispensaries. The application process and timeline are expected to be released in late March.

In the San Luis Valley:

The small town of Romeo is still in the process of establishing regulations, with no estimated timeline currently available.
