With extensive new state regulations and hefty fees in place this year, the first of Breckenridge’s medical marijuana dispensaries has secured its business license.

After shelling out more than $9,000 in state and local licensure fees, Alpenglow Botanicals is the first medical marijuana center in Breckenridge to be permitted under the new rules.

“It will be an annual fee to renew ( our license ),” Alpenglow Botanicals owner Charlie Williams said. “That’s a lot of T-shirts.”

Marijuana dispensaries in Breckenridge paid less than $300 in licensure expenses before the new regulations were in place, Williams said.
