Castle Rock, Colorado Marijuana Information
In Castle Rock
Castle Rock is the county seat for Douglas County, and is located about 30 miles South of Denver, at about the midway point between the capital and Colorado Springs. The town has a population of about 55,000, and was named for a castle shaped butte near the center of town.
The town was originally home to Native Americans, but became a popular place to live around 1862 when the Homestead Act gave land to those who sought it for gold mining. While the land produced more Rhyolite than gold, this didn’t stop people from migrating to the town.
The town prides itself on the abundance of open space it offers, with almost 30% of the nearly 40 square-miles of town preserved to showcase the beautiful and natural open space.
Thousands used to flock to Castle Rock annually in August to attend the Castle Pines PGA event The International. Though the event stopped being held in 2006, Castle Rock still offers legendary golf outings to those who seek it.
The town is known for its small town hospitality and has received recognition from many publications for being one of the best places to live not only within Colorado, but the entire country as well. There’s no retail marijuana shops in Castle Rock, so be sure to stock up in advance, or you’ll be left depending on the kindness of strangers.
