“Colorado Medical Marijuana Law” starts by focusing on Colorado’s historic legislation. Then it continues to a thorough analysis of how the law and the medical marijuana industry affect other areas of law, such as land use, the medical profession, business structures, contracts, taxation and government.

The author, Ann Toney, JD, provides up-to-date answers to questions based on current law, such as: How is impairment measured in a DUID case? What type of business entity is best for a medical marijuana business? What precautions should a landlord take when leasing commercial space to medical marijuana business? What are the rights of an employer and employee when an employee is using medical marijuana? What procedures must a physician follow when recommending medical marijuana?
