Aspen’s first retail marijuana shop plans to open this month. Silverpeak Apothecary has been working on getting approvals from the City and Pitkin County. The business currently operates as a medical marijuana dispensary but, it’s tripling in size to meet the needs of a budding industry. Aspen Public Radio’s Marci Krivonen reports.
Silverpeak employee Zoe Higgins chats with a curious caller behind the counter at Silverpeak Apothecary.
"Good morning, what can we do for you? No, we’re not recreational yet. We’re hoping for early to mid-March," she says to the caller.
