Colorado's First Medical Marijuana (MMJ) DispensariesCaregivers and medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado began to appear in early 2000. In the beginning of Colorado's push for medicinal marijuana, only a handful of dispensaries existed. For these early Colorado dispensaries operating their marijuana sales operations in a highly discrete manner was necessary to avoid avoid scrutiny from federal and state officials and ultimately to stay in business.
This all changed in 2009, when the Board of Health rejected a proposal to restrict the number of patients a caregivers could grow cannabis for to 5. With the rejection of this limit the dispensary model was born and the path toward to robust Colorado marijuana scene you see today set. There are now hundreds of medicinal cannabis shops in Colorado and the state is making a killing of taxing marijuana sales.
