Natural Choice Co-op, which operates a medical marijuana clinic in Downhill Drive Plaza, received a license from the state but is not yet in the city’s licensing process.
Of the 26 jurisdictions listed by the Marijuana Enforcement Division as having a state license issued within its boundaries, the city of Steamboat Springs is second in number only to the city and county of Denver, which far outpaces every other area with 270 total licenses.
