The Denver city council on Monday unanimously approved a bill that would slash the price of fees related to starting and contracting a marijuana transportation business.
As part of the bill, the council removed a July 2024 sunset date on an exclusivity period for social equity transporter businesses — meaning dispensaries can only use these businesses to deliver their products.
Further, the cost for a delivery permit drops from $2,000 to $25 for retail stores, and the transporter permit cost falls from $2,500 to $25. Application fees were reduced to $25 for stores, though transporters now have to pay a fee of the same price.
The move has some excited, like Michael Diaz Rivera, the founder and CEO of Better Days Delivery, one of 14 transporter businesses.
