Teaching

Present When It All Began

Jeff represents numerous patients, doctors and marijuana businesses throughout the state of  Colorado and has advised people from all over the country. He advises both state and local  governments in their development of medical marijuana business regulations. Jeff is widely  considered one of Colorado’s leading marijuana attorneys. 

Since the passage of Amendment 64, which legalized adult possession and cultivation of  marijuana in Colorado, Jeff has been working with state and local officials in developing  regulations for the retail marijuana industry and was appointed by the state to participate in the  rule-making progress.

Over the last several years, Jeff has been working with the U.S. Congress to assist with an  analysis of the Federal Code to determine the various areas which are impacted by the state  marijuana laws in hopes of reconciling state and federal law in the near future.
