Breckenridge Pot Shop Doesn’t Want To Be Exiled From Main Street

COLORADO:  If recreational marijuana wasn’t legal, Rick Smith would not be on holiday this week in Breckenridge.

In addition to ziplining and rafting during his vacation with family and friends in a Breckenridge condo, Smith visited the Breckenridge Cannabis Club on Main Street, picking up some marijuana and THC-infused mints and candies as well as a Colorado pot leaf sticker for his truck back home.

The Breckenridge Town Council in September last year banned marijuana stores in downtown, including along its historic Main Street, where T-shirt shops, bars, restaurants and boutiques occupy century-old buildings along Summit County’s most picturesque, pedestrian-friendly avenue.

The vote allowed the second-floor Cannabis Club to remain on Main Street until its lease expires on Sept. 1.
