COLORADO:  Police have so far sanctioned no recreational marijuana stores for selling to minors during underage compliance stings across the state, according to the Colorado Department of Revenue.

Authorities in Denver and Pueblo, working with regulators from the state Marijuana Enforcement Division, have conducted 20 undercover stings in which they see whether a store will sell pot to someone under 21. Sixteen of the compliance checks have occurred in Denver, home to most of the state’s recreational marijuana stores.

So far, no store has sold to someone under 21 in the checks.

“It is imperative that we keep marijuana out of the hands of kids,” Barbara Brohl, the executive director of the Department of Revenue, which includes the Marijuana Enforcement Division, said in a statement. “These results show that strong efforts are being made by the MED and the marijuana business licensees to do just that.”
