In Colorado, a Rebranding of Pot Inc.

In Colorado, a Rebranding of Pot Inc.

By JESSICA BENNETT Oct. 3, 2014

Step into a Colorado pot dispensary at random, and you’ll long for the luxuries of the D.M.V.

Metal bars cover windows. Vinyl signs are tacked to walls. Guys in hoodie sweatshirts greet you from behind the counter. Even the act of ordering the product itself is borderline absurd. What grown adult can respectfully walk into a store and ask for an eighth of Green Krack and a nub of Big Buddha Cheese, please?

But that experience is changing, thanks to a new breed of entrepreneur in Colorado — young, ambitious and often female — that is trying to reach a more sophisticated clientele in everything from language to packaging to social events.
