Marijuana

Although marijuana currently remains illegal under Federal law, many states have implemented medical and recreational marijuana laws. These laws can create confusion for the individuals and businesses involved. 

 

I am dedicated to helping clients understand and comply with Colorado's various laws and regulations surrounding this new industry. My firm offers guidance regarding Colorado medical and recreational marijuana laws and regulations, local marijuana laws and regulations pertaining to land use, zoning, and potential criminal consequences.

Hemp

 In Colorado, Industrial Hemp is significantly less regulated than the commercial marijuana industry.  However, there are still laws and regulations that hemp cultivators, manufacturers and distributors

must comply with.  

Hemp businesses also face many of the same business challenges and issues of any other industry: relationships with vendors, zoning restrictions, commercial lease negotiation, testing requirements, business formation and more.  I have the experience to guide hemp and hemp-based CBD businesses through the legal and business issues they may face.
