Retail marijuana industry transformation starts Tuesday

You could soon be seeing even more pot shops pop up in areas where it's legal. Starting Tuesday, anyone is allowed to apply for a recreational marijuana business license and no previous
medical marijuana experience is needed.

Newly licensed businesses can open starting in October.

Pueblo West is one area where a number of pot shops have opened in the past six months, but owners say they don't think pot shops are going anywhere and that they're happy with the friendly competition.

"We're all in this together," says Ieshia Jiron, floor manager at The Spot. "We're all a group of people that are all in the same industry and we're like a family
so we're going along with this industry at the same pace."

Jiron says 70 percent of customers at The Spot are over the age of fifty and that many of them come from out of state to buy products.
