Colorado Marijuana Dispensaries Close Under Federal Pressure

As state voters consider legalization, D.C. fires warning shots


Ten medical marijuana dispensaries have complied with letters sent by U.S. Attorney John Walsh to shut down, the U.S. Attorney's office confirmed in a press statement Tuesday. The dispensaries were within 1,000 feet of schools and were notified in early August that they had 45 days to shut down, move their business or face federal enforcement action.

According to 7News, the 10 shops that got the letters were in the Denver metro area and in southern Colorado.
