Denver busts 7 marijuana shops for underage sales

DENVER-- Seven marijuana stores in Denver made sales to people who were under the legal purchasing age of 21, Denver Police said Wednesday.

With 30 stores investigated in the operation, the number amounts to nearly one in four selling to underage people.

Since legal sales of recreational pot began in 2014, sting operations rarely resulted in underage sales. The first round of stings last year resulted in zero violations.

"We are disappointed," said Lewis Koski of the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division in a statement. "Up until now these compliance checks have been a bright spot for the industry."

Koski said that these busts reduce the industry's overall compliance rate statewide to 92 percent.
