As you may know, the City of Littleton currently has a ban on sales of retail marijuana, also referred to as adult-use or recreational marijuana, despite its citizens voting in favor of Amendment 64 in 2012, which permits recreational marijuana sales.

As a result, Littleton is missing out on additional tax revenue of up to $1,500,000.00 per year which is currently flowing to neighboring municipalities of Denver, Englewood, and Sheridan while simultaneously disadvantaging its current medical marijuana retailers against neighboring competition. 

RESIDENTS FOR A STRONGER LITTLETON LLC is trying to change this by bringing the issue to the ballot this coming November. If passed, it would compel the Littleton City Council to pass an ordinance regulating the sales of retail marijuana.

Q: How is recreational marijuana taxed and how much additional revenue can Littleton generate by allowing adult-use marijuana sales?

A: Unlike medical marijuana, recreational marijuana is subject to special taxes both on the City and State levels, which are substantially higher than common sales tax rates. It is estimated that Littleton can generate up to an additional $1,500,000.00 per year by permitting adult-use cannabis sales. For more details on taxation and revenue projections, please click here

Q: Will sales of medical marijuana continue if “recreational” is passed?

A: Yes. Some existing medical marijuana centers have been serving Littleton since 2009 and greatly appreciate their medical patient community and, as such, are fully committed to continuing medical marijuana sales. 

Q: How old do you have to be to purchase retail marijuana?

A: The legal age for retail marijuana purchases is 21.

Q: Will more dispensaries open up in Littleton?
A: No. The current proposal is only to permit retail sales at existing medical stores.

Q: Does allowing adult-use marijuana sales attract more crime?
A: No. Similarly to existing medical dispensaries, retail marijuana stores are strictly regulated on security requirements, age compliance, video surveillance, etc. In the words of Doug Stephens, Littleton Chief of Police “.. marijuana sales in Littleton...had minimal impact on [police] operations..” and existing operators “..have generally demonstrated responsible business practices..” When talking about the potential impact of recreational sales, Chief Stephens said “...we do not anticipate significant changes in marijuana related offenses, either driving or other criminal acts.” To read the full copy of Chief Stephen’s letter, click here.

Q: Will there be consumption on or near the premises?
A: No. Both state and local laws prohibit “on-site” consumption at retail stores and the rules are strictly enforced by the licensees. 

Q: Will there be additional marijuana businesses in Littleton?
A: No. Littleton’s municipal code currently prohibits all other types of marijuana establishments, such as cultivation, manufacturing and testing facilities, within city limits. The intent of the ballot is only to allow sales of retail marijuana at existing medical dispensaries only. 

Q: How do others feel about recreational marijuana in Littleton?
A: A recent poll survey found that more than a two-thirds majority of Littleton voters - 69% - support allowing the three medical marijuana stores to sell retail marijuna. See poll results here.
