The dispensary will open at the former site of VIP Cannabis, a dispensary that was raided in November of 2013 as part of the largest-ever federal raid against Colorado's medical marijuana industry. The opening comes on the heels of the confirmation of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General of the United States.

The building was formerly owned by VIP Cannabis, which was targeted by federal raids on suspicion of funneling money from Colombia to purchase a large warehouse for growing cannabis.
Diego Pellicer - Colorado's CEO, Neil Demers, commented, "We couldn't be more excited to open this dispensary. The cannabis industry is growing at an unprecedented rate, and we're extremely grateful to have the opportunity to help build Colorado's statewide industry.
