The City and County of Broomfield has received considerable feedback regarding its marijuana licensing process, particularly concerns regarding the attempt by certain affiliated groups to submit multiple applications using different corporate entities. This issue is currently the subject of pending litigation involving the City and numerous applicants. 

At this time, the City will temporarily pause the marijuana licensing process for a period not to exceed 60 days in order for staff to reassess the submission of applications from different, but affiliated entities. The City is in the process of considering administrative regulations to clarify this issue to ensure that the licensing process moving forward is consistent with the City Code, City Council’s intent when it implemented this robust licensing process, and fundamental fairness. 

Any dates previously scheduled in the licensing process will be rescheduled.  The City will post the new schedule publicly and will directly inform each applicant. 

While no further comments will be made on the pending litigation, questions regarding this pause should be directed to

Thank you.
