Downtown Dispensary in Aspen

The Denver Post

Aspen is about to get its first medical-marijuana dispensary.

The manager of Aspen L.E.A.F. (Locals Emporium of Alternative Farms), who asked to be identified only as Charlie, said Wednesday that a local ownership group plans to open a dispensary in downtown Aspen next week. It is currently looking at a couple of locations to set up shop, and a lease will be signed within days.

"We're looking at two locations in the center of town," Charlie said. "We've spoken to the landlords, and they are very supportive of it."

Under Colorado's medical-marijuana law, approved by voters in 2000, patients with certain conditions — including HIV, muscle spasms and chronic pain — can use medical marijuana as long as they get a doctor's approval and register with the state.

The Aspen marijuana dispensary will become the Roaring Fork Valley's third.

The WIN Health Institute, an alternative health care cooperative located in Basalt, was set to open a dispensary this month, and the Colorado Mountain Dispensary opened for business in Carbondale in early July.
