Denver marijuana regulators’ oversight improved, but still lacking tax transparency, auditor says


Denver’s Office of Marijuana Policy has successfully implemented some suggestions made last year by the city’s auditor; however, the regulatory office continues to fall short on full transparency about how pot tax revenue is spent, a report released Thursday shows.

Denver Auditor Timothy M. O’Brien issued a follow-up report to his 2016 audit of the Office of Marijuana Policy.

The follow-up audit found the office had increased its outreach efforts — via hosting quarterly check-in meetings, publishing bulletins specific to the marijuana industry and by attending Registered Neighborhood Organization meetings. It also noted improvements in documentation for how the office has tracked and monitored its ongoing efforts.

The agency, however, needs to be more transparent about how marijuana revenues will be spent, according to the auditor.
