Associate Lauren Carboni was quoted in a Law Week Colorado article, “Drawing the Line on Equity and Jurisdictions in Denver Marijuana Delivery,” about how Denver is opening up an area of the marijuana delivery industry to social equity applicants.
Carboni, a member of the Cannabis Industry Team, said she could see concerns about jurisdictional lines and marijuana delivery. For one thing, licensees will need to be up to speed on regulations around the geographic areas they work in and use maps of jurisdictions so they avoid delivering across city or county lines where there are different laws in place.
“That might be an interesting issue that pops up between state and local,” she said.
Carboni also said she believes this kind of social equity program might soon be seen elsewhere in the country. “This is an exciting time for the industry,” she said. “It’s just the beginning. … but I think that even at the local jurisdictional level, the drive and desire to make it an equitable industry is starting to become real.”
