Mike Genoways, deputy chief hearing officer, Colorado Dept. of Revenue, listens to public comments during a recreational marijuana rule making hearing, at the state Capitol, in Denver, Tuesday Aug. 20, 2013. Colorado's pot regulators opened three days of hearings Tuesday to lay out licensing specifics before retail sales begin in January. The proposed rules require would-be marijuana entrepreneurs to pay up to $5,000 to apply to be in the recreational pot business. Operational licenses would cost another $2,750 to $14,000.
