The line is not meant for anyone experiencing life-threatening emergencies, officials said.

“Additionally, this line is not meant for use as a directory of dispensaries and will not be useful for anyone seeking specifics of dispensaries, such as locations, hours and pricing,” officials stated.

The hotline is a three-month pilot program funded by the City and County of Denver that might be extended, officials stated.
