Teaching

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.

Jeff now shares his knowledge and experience with other attorneys and has given several lectures on various aspects of marijuana law, including:
