Kayvan Khalatbari is the owner and founder of Denver Relief, one of the city’s oldest dispensaries, which expanded into Denver Relief Consulting, and which works with fledgling dispensaries across the country. He is also the owner and founder of Sexy Pizza and Sexpot Comedy.

He is known for chasing, then Mayor, John Hickenlooper around in a chicken suit, pressing him on marijuana reform. In 2014, he made an unsuccessful run at an at-large city council seat. Khalatbari has been a marijuana advocate for over a decade, and along with Safer Alternative for Enjoyable Recreation (SAFER) campaigned for its legalization.

After an April 11 City Council hearing on a bill that will significantly restrict Denver’s marijuana market in an effort to curb oversaturation, Khalatbari took to Facebook to call the industry out on its lack of community outreach, which he says is the inspiration behind the bill.
