Uh oh, perhaps Colorado marijuana shops need to hire 24-hour security if they haven’t already.

Some scary happenings are going on at pot shops in Colorado.

Apparently some shops are being terrorized by “robber gangs,” according to NBC News.

A man dressed as a delivery man threaten to mace one pot shop employee and another broke into the dispensary with an ax and another robbed a clerk at gunpoint. The report doesn’t say anything about a connection.

“It’s only a matter of time before someone gets shot,” Mitch Morrissey, District Attorney for Denver, told NBC.

Those are big words. Hopefully it doesn’t happen, but you never know with crime.
