Friends,

We've got some surprising news. The Denver City Council is discussing instituting a city-wide ban on the outdoor advertising of MEDICAL marijuana in the city limits. And it was brought to them by another industry association! You heard that right, a segment of the industry is actively seeking to restrict your first amendment rights and limit your ability to operate your business as you see fit. Read about it here and here and especially here.

Check out our model for self-regulation.

At Cannabis Business Alliance, we believe in self-regulation and relying on creating industry best practices rather than government oversight. For the past 6 months we have been working with over 65 business owners, both members and non-members, to come up with a model for self-regulation. While our work on this will continue, we felt it important to get the agreed upon points out to the public sooner rather than later. If you agree with these principles, please become a member.

The “problem” that the Denver City Council is trying to solve actually has to do with the use of sign-spinners and what the city council perceives to be inappropriate targeting of non-patients and children. We agree that advertising should be patient focused, but disagree that the solution to the problem is an all-out city-wide ban. To make our position clear on the legislation that is currently moving through the Denver City Council, we feel a good compromise would be to allow advertising in places where MMCs are allowed to operate, either by state-law or city code.

Thanks,

Shawn Coleman
Executive Director
