Colorado Issues Pot Licenses

The budding legal marijuana industry is ready to light up. On Monday, Colorado issued 348 approved licenses for stores, manufacturers, and cultivation facilities to begin growing and selling the drug to anyone at least 21 years old in 2014. This includes 136 marijuana shops, which are mostly located in Denver. The state's voters approved a legalization law in 2012, and it will become the first state to boast a legal marijuana market.
