When recreational marijuana use was legalized in the state of Colorado in 2012, we all knew that we were in for a wild ride. Amendment 64 was on the ballot for the elections in November of 2012 would determine whether or not recreational marijuana use would become legal in the state of Colorado. Tons of people turned out to vote, both in support and in opposition of the ballot measure. To the surprise of many and the excitement of many more, Amendment 64 passed by a landslide on November 6th, 2012. This was a very exciting time for Colorado, but there was still fourteen months to wait before the first recreational marijuana dispensaries would open their doors to the public for the first time. Many people waiting in anticipation for the day that the dispensaries would open and many people had lots of questions and concerns about what that would look like and how it would affect the state, both financially and culturally. Finally, on January 1st, 2014 the first recreational marijuana dispensaries opened their doors to the public. Many people had traveled from all across the country to come to Colorado for this special day and waited in lines for hours on end in order to experience legally buying recreational marijuana for the first time in their lives.
When the first recreational marijuana dispensaries opened in January of 2014 there were only a handful to choose from. Over the past ten months there has been a massive influx of recreational marijuana dispensaries that have opened up all across the state. In the city of Denver in particular there has been a huge number of new marijuana dispensaries that have opened up over the past few months. In fact, in certain parts of the city it is said to be easier to find a recreational marijuana dispensary than it is to find a coffee shop. With so many new dispensaries having opened in the past ten months, competition between dispensaries has become very intense. There is certainly no shortage of customers, however with so many dispensaries to choose from it is hard for some dispensaries to maintain a steady flow of business.
This is where marijuana dispensary rewards programs come in to the picture. Because competition between dispensaries is so stiff, certain dispensaries have decided to utilize a marijuana dispensary rewards program in order to promote return customers and to bring in new customers. A marijuana dispensary rewards program works in a similar way to a frequent buyers card at a coffee shop; if you buy ten lattes you get your eleventh latte for free. At a dispensary if you buy a certain number of grams from them, they will punch your rewards card and then once you full up your card you will get something at a discounted rate, or something for free. This is a great deal for people who frequent recreational marijuana dispensaries. For the most convenient way to manage your dispensary rewards you can download a marijuana app on your smart phone to get more information about special deals and coupons from dispensaries near you!
