More than 2,000 want Colo. marijuana licenses

More than 2,000 Colorado businesses, from growers to dispensaries, have applied for new state medical marijuana licenses.

The applications were due Sunday and provide the first good sense of the size of Colorado's medical marijuana industry. The figure could still rise because applications postmarked by the due date will still be counted. The 2,059 forms received so far include applications from 717 dispensaries, 271 marijuana product makers and 1,071 marijuana growers.

Those applicants paid more than $7 million in fees, an average of about $3,400 per business.
