The City Club of Denver invites you to join us for the following presentation:

Ireland Stapleton regulatory law attorney Tom Downey will be giving an in-depth overview of the state of legalized marijuana & Hemp/CBD in Colorado and the rest of the country, including recent changes legalizing hemp cultivation. He’ll get into the weeds on how these nascent industries are impacting businesses, their employees, and corporate philanthropy, given marijuana remains federally illegal.
