Recent Raid On Medical Marijuana Dispensary in Colorado Causes Price Drop In Business Sale

Staff CMM - Tuesday, June 05, 2012
As the medical marijuana business in Colorado grows, it’s easy to assume that the price to buy an existing business will go up as well. However, it only takes one incident to cause the prices to plunge. Cannabis & Co., a Denver-based dispensary, was raided recently by local law officials and the owner was arrested as part of a sting operation. As a result, the dispensary was put up for sale at the low price of $129,000, which is less than half of the original listing price of $289,000. With such a low listing price, this dispensary has the potential to be a prime acquisition for an existing dispensary looking to expand. Many dispensary owners spent close to $100,000 just to comply with new state regulations. As the prices of dispensaries such as this one begin to drop, some fear this may signal a downturn in the overall medical marijuana market in Colorado, especially considering the recent action by the U.S. Attorney in shutting down many dispensaries in Boulder, Colorado. Supporters of medical marijuana in Colorado feel that these recent events may be enough to deter any would-be entrepreneurs from opening a medical marijuana business in Colorado in the near future.

Arrested Couple Claim Marijuana Growth Stash is for Medical Use

Todd Davis - Wednesday, November 16, 2011

When a couple in Larimer County was arrested last week for having $385,000 worth of marijuana plants in their house, they claimed they had a right to grow it for medical marijuana use. The 220 plants, along with numerous bags of packaged marijuana, drug paraphernalia, hallucinogenic mushrooms, marijuana growing materials and numerous firearms are confiscated from the couple’s home. Current medical marijuana laws dictate that a person with a state- issued medical marijuana card is legally able to grow up to six plants, and some believe that with the growing popularity of medical marijuana and medical marijuana dispensaries around the state, it is giving people an excuse to use and grow marijuana for personal use and hide under the cover of local and state laws. Until absolute, defined boundaries can be set in place, local law officials will have their hands full trying to keep the growing of marijuana limited only to those who actually use it for medical reasons.

Influx of Ft. Collins Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Cramping Town's Style

Todd Davis - Saturday, May 07, 2011

 

 

As state laws become stricter on medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado, outlying cities such as Ft. Collins are finding ways of their own to tighten restrictions on dispensaries and dispensary locations. With the number of dispensaries in Ft. Collins climbing to over 23, officials are working to keep the city from becoming a regional hub for medical marijuana users. Lawmakers voted 5-2 last week to grandfather in medical marijuana businesses already operating in the city or are in the process of getting a license in an effort to avoid the city becoming a growth and distribution hub. One way is to limit licenses to two. Another is to require businesses to adhere to the ordinance requiring a dispensary to keep at least 1,000 feet from schools and 500 feet from colleges, parks and places of worship. By tightening the belt on dispensaries, Ft. Collins lawmakers hope to keep Ft. Collins from becoming a focal point for medical marijuana users in the northern region.

Where to Shop: Caregiver vs. Dispensary

Todd Davis - Wednesday, March 31, 2010

As a patient of medical cannabis, many wonder what the best methodology to acquire product is. Colorado medical marijuana caregivers and dispensaries both have benefit; it is just a matter of deciding what is best for the individual. Commonly, a medical marijuana dispensary is thought of as a “convenience store”; a good place to find variety (edibles, hardware), but will be slightly more expensive due to the retail nature of the store. Caregivers, on the other hand, can be thought of as a “bulk store”; less variety, but larger amounts can be purchased for a little less money. One should not think of the two as competing or dueling entities, rather different methods to provide proper service to the patient.

Would Legalization Be So Bad?

Todd Davis - Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Most advocates of medical marijuana in Colorado focus on the medicinal benefits of Colorado Cannabis. True as this may be, perhaps this is just the first step for a blooming industry. Obviously, much controversy has surrounded the legitimacy of the newly flourishing industry. Opponents of the product tend to constantly site concepts like morality and social dangers as if medical marijuana in Colorado has already torn the moral fabric of society. It seems, in contrast to this belief, the industry has already provided a beneficial product and a potentially limitless expanding business prospect.  After all, there is a reason why over 300 Colorado medicinal marijuana dispensaries opened their doors in less than a year, thus creating one of the fastest growing and profitable industries in history. Unfortunately, this is both a gift and a curse for the industry: business exponentially expanded in a short time, but that ended up creating more skepticism and fear among the general public. Objectively speaking, legalizing Colorado cannabis would create business opportunities, provide jobs, and would provide literally billions of dollars to state and federal government in sales tax alone. For now, the battle will rage on just to keep the medical industry alive. Perhaps in the near future, fear and skepticism will fade away, allowing the industry thrive as it really should.

Legitimate Medical Marijuana Growers Stil Facing some Tough Issues

Todd Davis - Wednesday, November 11, 2009

 

There is a bounty of problems facing today’s Colorado medical marijuana growers, but the main problem tends to be focused around caregiver rules and regulations. other isssues include legitimization and legalization. Although many growers follow state laws very closely, there are still those who use the cover of state laws to fund their own private marijuana growing and selling operations. States such as Colorado and California have strict state requirements for those who grow the substance for medical use, but even with these strict guidelines in place, there are still individuals who find their way around the rules. Locating these individuals from among the many legitimate growers is a full time job for law enforcement agents operating on both state and federal levels. Although medical marijuana is still considered illegal on a federal level, states such as Colorado allow patients to use the drug for medicinal use as recommended by a physician for physical and mental ailments. In the state of California last year, law enforcement officials pulled up 364,000 plants grown strictly for sale on the black market. However, officials did state that over 154 growers were left intact who were following the guidelines for medical use. The general consensus among people in the medicalmarijuana industry is that legitimate growers make Business more difficult and less profitable for the drug cartels south of the border.
