DENVER - A retired teacher says Denver International Airport denied her request to sell marijuana-themed souvenirs there, reports CBS Denver.

Ann Jordan makes the pot-themed collectibles, such as socks and flip-flops with marijuana leaves on them. Some of the airport stores reportedly say they're interested in carrying her products, but Jordan says when she asked the airport, they turned her down.

"I think it's kind of crazy because I know you can buy a lot of other Colorado products there and this is part of our culture now, so it's a natural fit to me," Jordan said.

Colorado legalized the recreational use of marijuana ealier this year.

An airport spokesman acknowledged an employee turned down Jordan's request to sell her wares. The spokesman said the airport does not have a formal policy when it comes to selling pot-themed souvenirs and added that the facility is discussing the issue and will eventually make an official decision.
