Two online marijuana shipment businesses are under investigation by Denver’s Better Business Bureau. On June 15, 2017, the BBB announced that it was investigating Denver Marijuana and Denver Smoke Buds for illegally mailing marijuana, among other reasons.
The marijuana shipment businesses are illegal as it is a violation of both state and federal law to mail marijuana; plus, both businesses list fake addresses and neither are registered with the Colorado Secretary of State.
In addition to mailing marijuana and marijuana-related products, Denver Marijuana claims to sell bath salts and research chemicals. The business is also under investigation for trademark infringement for previously and falsely listing “BBB Accreditation” on its website as well as displaying a “100% satisfaction guarantee” seal online.
Denver Smoke Buds is being investigated for mailing marijuana and marijuana-derived products, but it is also being investigated for claiming to have won marijuana awards from Colorado Springs Gazette and Colorado Springs Independent and for falsely advertising supposed relationships with legal dispensaries and research partners.
