Statement from Michael Elliott, Executive Director of the Medical Marijuana Industry Group, regarding Denver’s final passage of the Denver Retail Marijuana Ordinance on Monday evening.
We believe that the Denver ordinance treats the industry fairly, promotes public safety, and respects the wishes of the voters.
We thank the city council members for their dedication and thoughtful consideration of all the issues.
As a new industry, we recognize and accept the responsibility to ensure responsible use by adults and to keep this product away from minors.
We look forward to continuing to work with the city to meet those shared goals.
The Medical Marijuana Industry Group is a trade association representing medical marijuana businesses in Colorado. Our mission is to be a resource for policy makers, and to protect and promote the Colorado medical marijuana regulatory model and the rights of medical marijuana patients.
