Emerging Industry: Cannabis Business Development
Marijuana Business Lawyers Serving Colorado
Colorado’s voter-approved Amendment 64 opened the door to a new and
promising industry. Since it went into effect, the commercialization of
marijuana has created new business opportunities across the state and
nation. As a result, a complex administrative and regulatory system has
been created with significant hurdles for entrepreneurs and businesses
looking to enter and thrive in this emerging industry, and particularly
as issues have yet to be resolved at the Federal level.

Recreational & Medical Marijuana
Amendment 64 had two primary effects. It decriminalized the use, possession,
and cultivation of marijuana for individuals over 21 (with certain restrictions)
and called for the creation of laws to regulate the retail sale of marijuana,
marijuana business licensing, and hemp production at the state and local levels.
While Colorado’s cannabis industry will likely provide the groundwork
for other states that pass marijuana legislation, it is also shrouded
by new, complex, and ever-changing regulatory laws. Given the complexity
of these laws, working with experienced Colorado marijuana business attorneys
becomes crucial to ensuring your business succeeds.
