Dispensary chain rewards customers who are registered to vote

BOULDER, Colo. — A Boulder-based dispensary chain is offering customers a stinky reason to get involved in the upcoming midterm elections.

Five Terrapin Care Station stores across Colorado will offer a 10 percent discount on purchased products if customers show proof of voter registration.

The company’s founder said current “political leanings may be polarized but everyone should agree that at its core, election participation is critical to a sound democracy.”

Cannabis legalization remains a hot political topic locally and at the federal level.

The discount is running ahead of when ballots should begin being mailed to voters on Oct. 15. and will be offered through Election Day on Nov. 6.

The deadline to register online and by mail in Colorado is Oct. 29. People can register and vote in person on Election Day.
