Through not fault of their own, hundreds of people who work in the pot industry are struggling for work after police raided the Sweet Leaf pot shop. DENVER — It’s a growing industry in a booming Colorado economy, but out of work employees at Sweet Leaf marijuana centers say they’re having a tough time finding other jobs because of a recent raid by Denver Police. DPD raided eight Sweet Leaf locations on December 14, after a sting operation found a dozen sales people allegedly selling marijuana to customers in amounts larger than allowed by law. The shops remain shuttered, with an estimated 300 people out of work. Signs posted on the shops’ front doors indicate that licenses to operate have been suspended for alleged violations of state law. One out of work employee, who asked not to be identified, said “there’s been no communication with upper management.” Christmas bonuses given, taken away after police raid marijuana shops
