The people of the State of Colorado passed Amendment 64 in 2012, which allows for personal use and regulation of marijuana for adults over 21 years of age as well as legal commercial cultivation, manufacture, and sales in the State. On January 01, 2014, the State of Colorado began permitting recreational sales of marijuana to the public over the age of 21. However, not all cities allow marijuana related businesses, and a substantial regulatory framework is in place that business owners must follow. Wessels & Arsenault, LLC can help you navigate the regulatory framework and ensure that your new or existing business can be in compliance.
Important questions our lawyers can help answer include:
- How does Amendment 64 affect the contracts that a business has with the federal government?
- Can a company still drug test employees for cannabis use?
- What rules must you comply with to start a business with cannabis based products?
- Can you be a partner in a business selling marijuana products if you are an out-of-state resident?
- What are your legal duties as a private premises owner where marijuana consumption may be taking place?
