Big picture? There continues to be a slight decline in the number of dispensaries overall. There are now 736 with on-track license applications with the state. That’s down from 759 when I did the numbers in May and from 818 in August, 2010. (Yes, this licensing process has really been that long.) There are also 291 applications for MIPs, which is actually more than there were in August, 2010.
You can click the above link for a full breakdown, but some takeaways include the fact that Colorado Springs, and El Paso County, have the second highest count of centers and MIPs after Denver (which we could guess). Less predictable is the knowledge that the ZIP code 80909 has the highest concentration of both in the state — 50. (Click here to go directly to the interactive map.)
