DENVER (AP) – Colorado marijuana stores operating near schools now have 45 days to discontinue sales or face legal action.

U.S. Attorney John Walsh has warned 10 marijuana stores they will be shut down if they do not discontinue sales 45 days from Monday.

Walsh says those who do not comply could face prosecution. Walsh says the stores are operating within 1,000 feet of a school, which provides for stiffer penalties.
