Colorado’s Real Estate Prices are Soaring Post-Legalization, So Maybe You Should Stay at a Cannabis Hotel Instead

With Colorado’s cannabis industry booming, other ventures are starting to see a major effect, too, particularly the housing and lodging market. Here’s a rundown of the state’s growth in both home prices and rental accommodations: Rocky Mountain Real Estate is Gaining Elevation Home prices have shot up since the state legalized retail cannabis in 2012. In March alone, Denver housing prices increased by 10%, an increase that puts the city second in line behind the San Francisco housing market (which has been seeing such a rapid progression, it’s actually created a bit of housing crisis). Since legalization, tourists, visitors, and cannabis refugees…

Washington’s Retail Marijuana Compliance Checks Didn’t Go as Well as Colorado’s

Last June, after Colorado’s retail cannabis program had been operating for six months, the state’s marijuana enforcement division ran a series of underage compliance checks to make sure businesses were conducting proper ID checks and refusing to sell to customers under the age of 21. Of the 16 underage operations that were conducted, all of the businesses that were tested passed. Unfortunately, when it came time for Washington to undergo the same compliance check, the Evergreen State wasn’t as fortunate as its rocky mountain sibling.  Despite the fact that various retail cannabis businesses were warned ahead of time by the liquor control…

How Much Does Colorado vs. Washington Recreational Marijuana Cost These Days?

Good news for the cannabis enthusiast: no matter the state, retail marijuana prices are expected to drop in Washington and Colorado throughout the rest of the year. While the black market still poses imminent competition barriers, the wake of 4/20 emphasized the importance of competitive pricing for all recreational stores. Both Colorado and Washington’s recreational markets have shown significant price drops since the opening of the country’s first legal pot-stores – a simple story of supply and demand. As expected, more retail stores spike competition in the market and force store owners to scale pricing. But what does retail marijuana actually cost…

Mo Money, Mo Problems: Colorado Struggling to Keep Cannabis Tax Money While Fighting Lawsuits

By now you know that Colorado is facing not one, not two, but three lawsuits over the state’s legal recreational cannabis market. Both Nebraska and Oklahoma are suing their neighboring state, as well as a Washington, D.C.-based group called Safe Streets Alliance, and most recently a group of sheriffs and prosecutors from Kansas, Nebraska, and Colorado are chugging the Haterade and piling on the lawsuits. “My office, as well as our partner state and local law enforcement agencies, are committed to stopping marijuana diversion. This lawsuit, however, even if successful, won’t fix America’s national drug policy-at least not without leadership from…

Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper Changes Stance on Cannabis, Says Legalization Can Work

To say that Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper has been less than enthusiastic about presiding over the legalization of recreational cannabis in his state would be quite an understatement. During campaign season last fall,he called legalization “reckless.” Of course, that opinion hadn’t stopped him from courting  funding from NORML for his re-election. His inability to take a firm, positive stance on something with a broad base of support in his state has been frustrating for cannabis activists, in Colorado and elsewhere. In a pleasant turn of events, it looks like Hickenlooper may have finally come around on the issue of marijuana legalization. On…

After Suing Colorado Over Recreational Cannabis, Nebraska Now Proposes New Medical Marijuana Legislation

Oh Nebraska. You silly midwestern state. You just can’t seem to figure out what you want. Senator Tommy Garrett recently introduced the Cannabis Compassion and Care Act. The bill outlines a plan to create a highly regulated medical marijuana system for seriously ill patients and could be monumental for Nebraska. If signed into law, this could relieve the suffering of thousands of patients by allowing the cultivation of up to 12 plants and six ounces of cannabis per patient. Well, that’s just peachy-keen, wouldn’t you say? Just fantastic for all of those Nebraskans who are in dire need of the…
