COMMERCE CITY, Colo. – Marijuana regulators in Colorado have started processing background checks for dispensary employees and vendors.

The state Department of Revenue began issuing licenses Thursday for people who work in marijuana shops. By July 1, those employees will have to be licensed to show that they meet residency requirements and don't have drug felonies.

Licenses will also be required of vendors who work in proximity to medical marijuana, such as accountants for a dispensary.

Workers must be 21 and show proof they've lived in Colorado two years. However, the residency requirement will likely apply only to owners, not employees, under a bill awaiting the governor's signature.

Dispensary owners have already submitted paperwork for state licenses, but none has been issued yet.
