With the legalization of marijuana in a handful of states, some folks have deemed the last few years the “green rush.” While the economies across several states are still struggling, Colorado has experienced impressive growth recently. Even if your business does not directly grow or sell cannabis products, you can still benefit from the expansion that we’ve seen in Colorado these past few years.
Complications with the Legalization of Cannabis
As a Colorado small business owner, it’s not news to you that while cannabis may be legal in your state, it remains illegal at the Federal level. This can affect your business and financial decisions across the board. Even if your company is not producing or selling cannabis products, many of the well-known national insurance carriers can still refuse to renew your policy if, say, you rent retail space and parking to a dispensary. You may also find your policy inadequate if your store sells auxiliary products such as vaporizers or paraphernalia that have no federal restrictions.

- Banks and credit unions that provide funding for cannabis growers and sellers
- Medical professionals prescribing cannabis to patients
- Attorneys that defend those involved in the marijuana industry
