Aspen, Colo. (AP) - The medical marijuana business is growing on the Western Slope.

Aspen saw its first two dispensaries open in less than a week.

A former dentist's office is the new home of Aspen L.E.A.F., which stands for Locals Emporium of Alternative Farms. That dispensary opened for appointments on Monday. The next day, Cooper
Street Apothecary opened for business.

New dispensaries have also opened this summer in Basalt, Carbondale and Edwards. The town of Avon received its first application for a dispensary business license this month.

Colorado voters approved the dispensaries in 2000, but in the first few years of the medical marijuana law most dispensaries were located along the Front Range.
