DENVER, Colo. (AP) Colorado has issued its first state licenses for stores hoping to sell recreational marijuana once those sales become legal on Jan. 1.

The state Marijuana Enforcement Division mailed out licenses to 136 marijuana stores on Monday. Those stores can sell pot to adults 21 years old and over if they've also received approval from local governments.

102 of the licenses went to stores in Denver.

State officials also mailed licenses for 31 producers of marijuana-infused products and 178 marijuana cultivation facilities.

Colorado voters legalized recreational marijuana in 2012.
