Landmark Training on Colorado’s New Marijuana Laws today (5/22)

Sensible Colorado and the United Food & Commercial Worker’s Union Local 7 Team Up for a Public Education Event

FORT COLLINS — Interested community members and prospective marijuana business owners from around the state will gather at the Council Tree Library in Fort Collins this Wednesday evening, May 22, for a public seminar on the legal and business aspects of Colorado’s new marijuana laws. This training will provide an in-depth explanation of Colorado’s recently passed marijuana laws — including Amendment 64, the new “adult use” implementation laws, as well as a special focus on Question 301, the local medical marijuana law recently passed in Fort Collins.

Expert speakers include the authors of Amendment 64 and Question 301– along with allies from the labor movement — who will explain rights and opportunities created by these new laws.

“Colorado voters and the state legislature recently endorsed a number of complex and important marijuana laws,” said Brian Vicente, director of the non-profit Sensible Colorado and co-author of Amendment 64 and Question 301. “This training will answer ‘frequently asked questions’ about these new laws for medical patients, business owners, and interested community members.”
