Denver issues ticket, warning letters to unlicensed cannabis hospitality businesses

Eight businesses have recently received warnings for hosting marijuana-related activities in Denver without the required license, with a separate ticket issued to Tetra Lounge.

On Saturday, the city investigated multiple locations after receiving complaints of illegal events taking place, said Eric Escudero, spokesperson for Denver Department Of Excise And Licenses. Officials issued a general violation ticket to the operator of Tetra Lounge at 3039 Walnut St. “for necessity of a license to operate,” he added.

Tetra Lounge didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Escudero declined to comment further on that specific case, as it’s being handled by the Denver City Attorney’s Office as a criminal matter. Spokesperson Melissa Sisneros declined to comment on pending litigation.
