Cannabis Law in Colorado:

CL201: Cannabis Law in Colorado: Introduction to Colorado Cannabis Business Models

Description: Attorney Robert J. Corry, Jr. discusses the legal issues related to marijuana businesses in Colorado. This 3.5 hour class is designed for those who want to thoroughly understand all the legal issues in Colorado marijuana law for both recreational and medicinal marijuana and explore business opportunities available for cannabis-related ventures in Colorado. This class is also beneficial for those in other states, because it covers general and federal legal issues that it is important for everyone to know.

Topics in this seminar include:

1) A64: Colorado Marijuana and Hemp Regulation Act
Amendment 64, passed in 2012, allows adults 21 years of age and older to possess one ounce of marijuana and to cultivate six plants, with no more than 3 flowering at any time. A64 also allows adults to assist each other in cannabis cultivation, and allows private use that is not public and open. A64 requires the DOR to develop rules for commercial marijuana cultivation, manufacturing, testing and retail facilities.

This seminar covers the following business models allowed under A64:
- A64 Assistance Agreements: A64 allows adults to assist each other in cannabis growing and processing, as long as there is no "remuneration" for these services. Learn how to protect yourself with Assistance Agreements.
- A64 Private Cannabis Clubs: A64 allows private use that is not public and open. Learn what you need to start your own private club that is compliant with the Constitution.
- A64 Medicinal Hemp CBD Medicines: A64 defines industrial hemp as any cannabis with less than 0.3% THC. There are no cultivation or processing requirements on hemp in A64. As many growers know, the THC content is often inversely proportional to the CBD content in cannabis: the less THC, the more CBD. CBD (cannabidiol) is a cannabinoid that has been found to have exceptional medical benefits, including anti-convulsant, anti-inflammatory anti-psychotic and anti-tumor properties. The public demand for low-THC/high-CBD medicinal products is increasing rapidly.
- A64-inspired "Pot for Donations" schemes: Learn the meaning of the word "remuneration" and the significant potential risks and dangers of this business model.
- A64 State-Licensed Marijuana Cultivation Facilities, Marijuana Testing Facilities, Marijuana Product Manufacturing Facility, Retail Marijuana Stores: A64 creates all of these entities, and the DOR is required to promulgate regulations for licensing procedures. Learn the risks and rewards of this business model, and how to be first in line to develop one of these new marijuana businesses.

2) A20: Colorado Medical Marijuana Regulation Act
Amendment 20, passed in 2000, allows patients that have been diagnosed with a debilitating medical condition to possess 2 ounces of marijuana to cultivate six plants, with no more than 3 flowering at any time.

This seminar covers the following business models allowed under A20:
- Medical Marijuana Caregivers: A20 allows caregivers to provide marijuana for patients.
- State-Licensed Medical Marijuana Centers (MMC's), Infused Products Manufacturers and Growers: In 2010, the state created a licensing procedure for medical marijuana businesses in HB1284. This statutory program does not have the protection of the Constitution, and therefore is subject to change at any time.
- Medical Marijuana Patient Collectives: Find out why the Patient Collective business model (protected by the Constitution) may actually offer more legal protection than the MMC model (protected only by statute).
- Patients Assisting Patients: Still protected under the Constitution, patients do have a right to assist other patients in obtaining their medicine.

3) Colorado statutes and rules regarding marijuana: The Department of Revenue Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED) governs all marijuana regulations in the state, overseeing both the A20 and A64 marijuana programs. Learn what to expect from the MED.

4) Federal Law
The federal government believes that marijuana remains illegal under Federal Law. Learn the basics of state's rights and the consequences of federal intervention into Colorado's marijuana programs. Know the risks thoroughly before you embark on any marijuana-related business venture.

5) Other Topics
- Which offers more protection: A64 or A20?
- Cities and counties that have banned marijuana
- Confidentiality and Privacy Issues
