Marijuana Business Formation

Guiding You Through the Marijuana Business Formation Process in Colorado

As more states take steps to legalize marijuana for recreational purposes, many Colorado entrepreneurs are considering starting their own marijuana businesses. However, marijuana is still illegal at the Federal level, which complicates the process of launching a new marijuana-related business in Colorado. Whether you are interested in opening a dispensary, manufacturing facility, or transport business for marijuana, contact the Law Offices of Clifton Black, PC, to discuss your goals with an experienced and knowledgeable Colorado marijuana business lawyer. You want to ensure that your business complies with all the necessary regulations and has the solid foundation it needs to thrive.

Marijuana Business Formation Basics in Colorado

There are a couple of general requirements when applying for a marijuana business license in Colorado. First, the applicant must be 21 years of age or older, possess a storefront where they will operate the business, and abide by city zoning ordinances. Applicants not previously licensed who desire to form a new business must submit a pre-suitability application before moving forward. A few issues could render you ineligible for obtaining a Colorado Marijuana License, such as felony convictions or having your authority as a primary caregiver revoked. Additionally, you must obtain the required state and city or county marijuana licenses and abide by several labeling, packaging, and surveillance requirements to operate your marijuana business. It can be confusing to navigate these requirements, so contact our office today to discuss your specific situation.

Trusted Legal Guidance During Every Step of the Application Process

You will need to apply separately for each license type depending on what kind of establishment you want to form. For instance, if you want to open a retail dispensary that grows its own cannabis, you will need a retail marijuana store license and a retail marijuana cultivation license. Marijuana laws and regulations are constantly shifting, which is why it’s essential to enlist the guidance of a knowledgeable and experienced marijuana attorney to keep you informed of any policy changes that could impact your marijuana business.
