Denver Receives First Cannabis Delivery Application
Denver just received its first application for cannabis delivery.
Denver recently legalized cannabis delivery and smoking lounges, after years of debate following Colorado’s early legalization. Now, the first business in the city looking to deliver has officially submitted an application.
The business, Doobba LLC, applied for a no premise transport license and delivery permit. Their hope is to become Denver’s first cannabis delivery company.
Run by a husband-and-wife team, the small business is headed up by Karina Cohen and her husband, Ari Cohen, who qualified for social equity status because her husband has previously been arrested for cannabis.
Cohen attended some of the social equity sessions virtually through the city before applying to learn about the process and whether or not they’d be eligible. Her husband has a long history of working in the cannabis industry, and together, they are excited to take on these new challenges.
“Because the City of Denver’s social equity program truly looks to assist those of us who have been negatively impacted by the War on Drugs, this new program Mayor Hancock and his team have created allows professionals like myself to participate in an industry I’m passionate about,” Cohen told High Times.
“My husband has a felony conviction for selling marijuana, but that was lifetimes ago—and now that we all have witnessed the power of this plant and the social good this industry is capable of creating, I am so glad to be able to make a social change, create opportunities for others and pave the way to end cannabis prohibition.
“We are super excited to be the first woman-led, social equity delivery company in Denver. This is a huge step forward in achieving our purpose to end cannabis prohibition.”
The city expects to get more applicants in the coming days based on the amount of questions they’ve been receiving about the process. The changes officially took effect, appropriately, on April 20, but it took until June 23 for applications to be accepted.
