Colorado -- The frantic barrel race that is the Colorado medical-marijuana industry's summer-long rush toward regulation rounds its second marker today, when dispensary owners must submit a licensing application to the state or close shop.State Department of Revenue officials will be accepting applications until 5 p.m. today at their new medical-marijuana enforcement office at Mile High Greyhound Park in Commerce City.
"If there's a line of people out the door at 5 on Sunday, we're not going to close them out," said Matt Cook, the Revenue Department's senior director of enforcement.That gives dispensary owners precious few hours left to complete the 30-some pages of application forms in time to meet the deadline  which, like the July 1 deadline to apply for a local dispensary license, has caused considerable heartburn throughout the business."Sheer terror grips the industry," medical-marijuana attorney Jeffrey Gard said, only half-joking.The deadline is significant for two reasons. First, come Monday the state will finally have a tally of the number of dispensaries in operation. Previous estimates have placed the number at more than 1,000. But it is unclear whether that many will fill out the lengthy application  which requires applicants to reveal financial information, criminal history, educational background and other personal details  and pay the application fees, which range from $7,500 to $18,000.
