Located right outside Denver, Aurora is a popular place for many families to settle down due to its proximity to the city and mountains at more affordable prices. While many see it as simply an extension of Denver, Aurora has plenty to offer on its own. Besides being close to the Rocky Mountain Front Range and Cherry Creek State Park, Aurora is full of great restaurants and shopping opportunities. The Town Center at Aurora is a great mall to explore, and the Downtown Aurora Visual Arts Center is a great place to check out local youth artists and programming. Aurora is also home to many dispensaries, so you’ll be able to find all of your cannabis needs in town.
After Colorado legalized medicinal cannabis in 2000 and then opened up its recreational marijuana market in 2014, the industry has grown exponentially. Aurora is no exception, and the city continues to see its marijuana market grow. It is home to over 25 dispensaries, along with easy access to all of the Denver dispensaries. Dispensaries are able to be open from 8 AM until 10 PM, but be sure to check your dispensary’s website as hours may vary. In Colorado (and in Aurora), consumers over the age of 21 may buy up to 1 ounce of cannabis flower, 800mg of edibles or 8g of concentrates at a time. For those with a valid medical marijuana card, you may purchase up to 2 ounces of flower at a time.
