Parachute lands Colorado’s first drive-thru pot shop


PARACHUTE | A business believed to be Colorado’s first drive-thru marijuana shop is opening up this week.

The Rifle Citizen Telegram reports  customers will be able to start pulling their cars into the Tumbleweed Express Drive-Thru starting Thursday, the unofficial marijuana holiday. The shop is located in the western Colorado town of Parachute.

A spokesman for the state Marijuana Enforcement Division, Robert Goulding, says it isn’t aware of any other drive-thru pot shops in Colorado.

He says the business will have to comply with regulations that apply to every marijuana shop. That means no one under 21 will be allowed, even if they are in the back seat of a car. Since no pot can be visible outside the shop, vehicles will have pass through the building, a former car wash, to get to the sale window.
