AURORA, Colo. (AP) - The Denver suburb of Aurora now has its first marijuana dispensary.
The Euflora recreational marijuana shop opened up Monday in a converted bank building that came with built-in security measures.
Aurora didn’t allow medical marijuana sales but has decided to allow recreational marijuana. Denver requires stores to close at 7 p.m., but Aurora allows stores to stay open until 10 p.m.
Aurora has granted licenses to 21 recreational marijuana dispensaries. The city has not yet added a local sales tax onto statewide sales and excise taxes of 27.9 percent. But Aurora voters will consider extra 2 percent local sales taxes on ballots next month.
Statewide, Colorado has more than 250 licensed recreational pot shops.
