Summary

Denver begins accepting new applications for cannabis business licenses next month — but not for certain neighborhoods. The rule is that new licenses will be barred for the top five neighborhoods, including ties. The city’s Department of Excise and Licenses on Friday informed marijuana industry insiders of neighborhoods that the city feels already have an “undue concentration” of marijuana stores and/or cultivation facilities. The city will update the list annually, and some neighborhoods could fall off, department spokesman Eric Escudero said. Three neighborhoods — Overland, Elyria Swansea and Northeast Park Hill — appear on both lists.
