retail pot

  An Aspen retail marijuana shop was robbed on Tuesday. As of that night, the man is still at large. At 12:30pm Tuesday, a twenty something year old man stole marijuana from a store downtown called Stash. Owner Garrett Patrick calculates more than 400 grams were stolen, but declines to say what the value is.

On Tuesday night, Carbondale Town Trustees considered yet another aspect of marijuana in the midvalley. They approved $20,000 for the Roaring Fork School District for mental health counseling, and to educate kids and parents about pot. Aspen Public Radio’s Elise Thatcher talks with with the District’s Chief Academic Officer, Rob Stein.

Carbondale’s marijuana industry is growing, and once again, the Doctor’s Garden is at the forefront. In 2014, the business opened the first retail marijuana store in the Roaring Fork Valley. Now, a new branch of that business has gotten the go-ahead to extract marijuana oil and make edibles with it.

Governor John Hickenlooper says when it comes to legal marijuana, the future is still somewhat hazy in Colorado. Recreational pot became legal last year and retailers started selling it in January. Hickenlooper looked back yesterday on how the process has gone so far, in a talk at the Aspen Ideas Festival. Aspen Public Radio’s Marci Krivonen reports.
