Helping Individuals And Businesses Navigate Colorado's Marijuana Industry

In 2000, Colorado passed legislation legalizing medical marijuana. In 2014, recreational marijuana was legalized by the voters of Colorado. These rights are protected in the Colorado Constitution. Today, Colorado's multibillion-dollar cannabis industry is one of the fastest growing and profitable within the state, indeed the nation.

While there is no denying its success and prosperity, the state's marijuana industry continues to be subject to complex and ever-changing regulatory laws that present unique and varied challenges for not only growers, but also to investors, employers, and marijuana businesses alike. The Trump Administration may present new challenges of which industry participants must be diligent in monitoring to protect their business interests.
