Medical Marijuana Distribution Criminal Defense Lawyer

After the passage of Amendment 20 authorizing the possession and cultivation of medical marijuana in 2000, it took ten more years for the Colorado Legislature to pass laws that formally regulate medical marijuana businesses. Even today, in the wake of Amendment 64 addressing the recreational use of pot and cannabis edibles, it is a given the laws and how they are applied will continue to change in Colorado.
