US (CO): State suspends two Colorado Springs MMJ dispensaries

Two medical cannabis dispensaries in Colorado Springs are closed after the state suspended their business licenses.

Plastered on the door of Canna Meds Wellness Centers’ two locations at 506 N. Chelton Road and 2218 N. Academy Place is a sign with “Notice of Suspension” in bold red letters. It states that the “regulated cannabis business licenses for these premises have been suspended by order of the state licensing authority for alleged violation of the Colorado cannabis code.”

Chris Rice, the owner of Canna Meds, declined to answer 13 Investigates’ questions about why the licenses were suspended. Instead, he said via Facebook, “After being an important part of the cannabis movement for the state of Colorado, we are very disappointed in the state’s actions.”

13 Investigates contacted the state’s Marijuana Enforcement Division for details about the suspension but hasn’t heard back. According to state records, no formal action has been taken yet, meaning the business licenses could be reinstated.
