Aspen grants second recreational pot license

The Local Licensing Authority granted a recreational marijuana sales license to Ron Radtke on Wednesday for his East Hyman Avenue cannabis location.

Because state authorities require a due-diligence time period before opening, Radtke will have to wait until April to convert Green Dragon Aspen, currently a medical marijuana operation, to a dual operation. He plans to hold a soft opening at the store, located at 400 E. Hyman Ave., either today or Saturday.

Radtke, who aims to sell recreationally the first week in April, also operates Green Dragon Colorado, a medical facility in Glenwood Springs.
