Denver City Council Approves Extended Dispensary Hours

UPDATE: Beginning May 8th,The Green Solution’s®  Grape Street and Alameda stores will be open until 10pm daily

We get it – you’re busy. Between work, family, fitness, and a social life, it’s not always possible to make it to the dispensary by its 7 p.m. closing time. But don’t fret, because we have some good news. This week, the Denver City Council declared that beginning on May 1, 2017, dispensaries within the city limits will be able to stay open until 10 p.m., giving patrons three more hours to shop.

When Colorado legalized retail cannabis sales in 2014, the state determined that the maximum allowed hours of operation for dispensaries would be 8 a.m. to midnight, giving cities and counties authority to set more restrictive hours. While Aurora and Commerce City opted for a 10 p.m. closing time, the tiny cities of Glendale and Edgewater decided to stay open until midnight. Given the fact that the later closing times seemed to have few if any negative effects on the smaller communities, Denver has decided to follow suit.

At The Green Solution®, we’re grateful to the City of Denver for looking out for the well-being of its citizens – whether they happen to be cannabis consumers or not. With the city’s blessing, beginning on Monday, May 1st, we’re extending the hours at our Alameda and Grape Street locations to 10 p.m. to accommodate patrons who have trouble making it in to shop before 7 p.m. Our Edgewater location will continue to be open until 11:45 for all you night owls.

As always, thanks to the State of Colorado, the City of Denver, and to you, our patrons, for continuing to make our state’s cannabis industry a shining example for the rest of the U.S. and the world at large.
