STEVE DURAN OWNER, COOKIES-PUEBLO
Steve Duran is a pioneer in the regulated cannabis indus- try, bringing the rst licensed cannabis facility to the City of Pueblo in Colorado, eventually turning his lifelong dedication to marijuana into one of the most successful dispensaries in Pueblo. Raised in Pueblo by a single mother, Steve found can- nabis at a young age and spent his teenage years in and out of juvenile detention facilities. When medical marijuana dispen- saries started popping up across Colorado in 2009, Steve saw an opportunity to pursue his passion without risking jail time. Starting as a caregiver growing for local patients and a dis- pensary employee, Steve mastered every facet of the industry, using those skills to pursue his own dispensary. Steve, without any assistance from investors, took the steps to bring his vision to life. With the help of his wife Monique, Steve cut through the miles of regulatory red tape to open the rst-ever medical dispensary in Pueblo City, transitioning to recreational sales just two years later with one of the rst 8 adult-use licenses in the City of Pueblo. To date Steve currently owns ve licenses including a Social Equity license in the State of Colorado. “I want people like me to know there is a path, if you're willing to work your ass o, you can make it happen.”
