On Monday, Colorado lawmakers approved a bill for a new kind of marijuana license for weed couriers.
Currently marijuana couriers are classified as “vendors,” a broad category that includes other ancillary services. Colorado now has a dozen marijuana companies that transport marijuana from manufacturing and grow locations to dispensaries.
The new license would grant couriers new powers, such as the ability to temporarily store marijuana in the event of a highway closure due to a snowstorm. Currently, marijuana couriers must return to the original pickup location if they can’t make the delivery within a certain time period.
According to legislative analysts, two dozen people are expected to apply for the license. The courier licenses would cost about $4,400 for two years. The bill has been sent to Governor Hickenlooper for his signature.
