Sweet Leaf Officially Ceases To Exist In Denver

They signed their own death warrant by “looping”

Denver wiped itself clean of Sweet Leaf marijuana stores today, July 5, after Denver’s Department of Excise and Licenses executive director Ashley Kilroy revoked all of the dispensary chain’s business licenses within city limits. The decision was somewhat expected, as city hearing officer Suzanne Fasing recommended the same move in April after a five-day hearing over the fate of the company’s licenses.

Sweet Leaf held 26 medical and recreational marijuana business licenses in Denver that covered seven dispensaries and several cultivations and infused-product manufacturing centers. The company was one of the state’s largest dispensary chains until eight of its stores in Denver and Aurora were raided by the Denver Police Department and various enforcement agencies in December 2017 after a year-long investigation into alleged looping, or selling unlawful amounts of marijuana to customers. Eighteen budtenders were arrested in connection with the investigation, although none of the company’s owners or management have been charged.
