Medical Marijuana Issues Facing Colorado in 2011

Colorado has become a unique legal landscape ever since voters approved the use of medical marijuana in 2000. The state is home to well over 100,000 patients who are part of the registry, or roughly 2% of the state population, and dispensaries have become abundant across Denver and other cities.

Every year sees new legal challenges, legislation, and ballot initiatives focused on issues surrounding medical marijuana, and 2010 was no different. In the 2010 general election, 41 Colorado communities voted on medical marijuana issues. New legislation now requires a stricter caregiver-patient relationship and lower fees for indigent patients. Additionally, patients have filed suit in the Colorado Supreme Court to prevent the state from implementing new regulations, which they claim restrict their access to medicine and violate their privacy.

As 2011 begins, come hear Colorado’s medical marijuana practitioners and regulators address issues facing Colorado in the coming year, including:

  • Proposed Colorado Department of Revenue Medical Marijuana Regulations
  • What the medical marijuana industry must do to comply with the new regulations
  • Points of conflict with meshing new medical marijuana law with existing criminal law
  • Handling the defense of medical marijuana investigations and regulatory citations
  • Colorado physicians making medical marijuana recommendations
  • Ethics in the practice of medical marijuana law in Colorado

These and other issues will be addressed in a CLE seminar, Medical Marijuana Issues Facing Colorado in 2011, on Friday, January 14, 2011. You can register for the live program here, or for the live webcast here.

The program will also be available as a homestudy in three formats: audio CDMP3 download or online video on-demand. Homestudy materials may be available in their entirety or by selected subjects from the seminar.
