With the coronavirus pandemic continuing to spread, Colorado’s recreational marijuana dispensaries have been asked to go curbside.
According to an executive order from the state’s Governor Jared Polis, dispensaries had to go curbside pick-up by Tuesday March 24th and will have to operate this way until April 10th.
Medical marijuana stores in the state can remain open, as long as social distancing is observed.
Polis issued the executive order on March 22 directing all of Colorado’s non-critical workplaces to cut in-person staff in half (the rest must work at home) to limit the spread of coronavirus.
Recreational sales are also limited to online pre-orders or orders made outside the store, for curbside pick-up.
Denver does not have to apply the order as the city’s Mayor Michael Hancock has just ordered all rec dispensaries to stay closed altogether until April 10. Medical marijuana stores can stay open in Denver but must observe best practices for public safety.
