Legalizing Marijuana Colorado Confusion-6

In this Dec. 6, 2013 photo, an employee of The Clinic, a Denver-based dispensary with several outlets, takes a payment from a customer for a bag of marijuana and a THC-infused soda, in Denver. The Clinic is among the roughly 150 medical marijuana dispensaries hoping to begin selling to recreational users when it becomes legal to sell on Jan. 1, 2014. The state's hopeful pot shops are so mired in red tape and confusion that no one knows yet when or if they'll be allowed to open. Not a single shop will clear state and local licensing requirements until about Dec. 27. (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley)(AP Photo/Brennan Linsley)
