GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) - The decision on who will be able to operate a marijuana retail business in Grand Junction will take another step forward today. That’s when the city will hold a lottery to see who is selected to hold a license for a pot shop.

The lottery drawing will happen at 11 am, March 30.

31 potential businesses are vying for a license. Only 10 will be selected. High Colorado will be included in the lottery. If they are picked, an 11th applicant will be chosen because of pending litigation contesting the applicant’s rejection during the public hearing process.

Their initial application was rejected after it was ruled they’re too close to Grand Junction High School.
