The three former Sweet Leaf dispensaries outside of Denver that were shut down by Colorado law enforcement and regulatory agencies now have a new tenant. Xclusive Cannabis has taken over Sweet Leaf’s old stores in Aurora, Federal Heights and Thornton, with the Aurora location nearing a grand opening.
Once one of the largest dispensary chains in Colorado, Sweet Leaf saw all of its dispensaries raided throughout 2017 and 2018 by the Denver Police Department, state Marijuana Enforcement Division and other local law enforcement agencies as part of an investigation into the company for looping, or illegal pot sales. Those raids eventually led to Sweet Leaf losing all of its dispensary, cultivation and infused-product manufacturing licenses in Colorado, with the company’s three co-owners each sentenced to a year in prison.
