Even as he defended federal marijuana prohibition, US Attorney General Jeff Sessions last Thursday conceded that states have the right to pass their own marijuana laws. Sessions, an avowed foe of marijuana legalization, has moved to rescind Obama-era guidance to prosecutors that gave some protection to state-legal marijuana operations, but the reality on the ground […]

Colorados Leading Cannabis Business Experts, Clover Leaf Consulting Hosted A64 Only Cannabis Video Symposium Series Third Event Thursday January 17th 2013.

posted in: Hemp Legislation 0

Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) January 19, 2013

On November 6th, Colorado passed Amendment 64 being the first U.S. state to regulate recreational cannabis in history. The passing of Amendment 64 has raised hopes of expanding marijuana business opportunities and tax revenues. In fact, the first forty million dollars annually will go to fund education. This historic event has generated excitement across the country, but also holds many questions on the implementation of a substance transitioning out of prohibition. This has a direct impact on current and future cannabis business owners.

The Cannabis Industry’s projected value is between $ 3 – $ 4 billion with an influx of “Ganjapreneurs” and investors seeking to capitalize on this major opportunity. Due to the fact that it is a black market legitimizing itself out of prohibition, the industry’s growth could be exponential with the passing of national legalization and implementation in the coming years. This does not take into account the ample business opportunities being developed for industrial hemp. “Colorado’s Cannabis Community has not only helped educate patients and validate the efficacy of medical cannabis, but it also created and stabilized a medical cannabis business model as well,” says Villano. “I believe HB1284 & Amendment 64 will eventually find common ground for regulation, offering tremendous business opportunities, investments, educational programs, job training and generate large economic stimulation in Colorado.”

The A64 Symposium will be highlighted into two segments.

“THC DUI” 7:00-7:45 pm

Since Colorado’s historic vote to legalize the regulation of recreational cannabis we have been unsure of the repercussions that would come from first time system errors, and miseducation for our leaders. We have fought this unreasonable bill tooth and nail and guess what…its back. Join Clover Leaf’s CEO Chloe Villano along with Mike Elliott, Esq., Sean McAllister Esq., Anne Toney P.C., Professor Daniel Rees, and The Colorado Department of Transportation as we discuss the THC DUI.

“Regulated Rules Task Force Update” 8:10 pm – 9:00 pm

The “Rule making” Govoner’s Task Force has been meeting all week long. We have been uncertain of our transitioning process as we expand the Cannabis Industry in Colorado, open more businesses, and make changes to our existing systems and procedures. What can we expect? What can we do? Join Clover Leaf’s Chloe Villano, along with our diverse panel of experts from the leading industry groups as we discuss the task force update and first draft development of the rule making process for Colorado’s regulated marijuana laws. Speakers include Bob Dill, Warren Edson, Robert Corry Jr, Meg Sanders, and Mike Elliott.

With the current legislative rules in flux, its important to get all the latest facts, figures as well as network with fellow industry professionals. Therefore Cloverleaf Consulting has provided the Industry manditory Information by hosting the following Amendment 64 Cannabis Business Symposium event series. This is the third event in the series. Clover Leaf will hold the Cannabis Business Symposiums the third thursday of every month at Casselmans. Future Symposium dates include: February 21, March 21, April 18, May 23, and June 20, 2013.

Republican Utah State Senator Mark Madsen Advocates the Legalization of Cannabis in Exclusive Video Interview with

posted in: Cannabis 0

Denver, CO (PRWEB) April 21, 2015

A conservative Republican Utah state senator has a “420” message for America: “It’s time to legalize medical cannabis.” In an exclusive video interview released this morning at, Utah State Senator Mark Madsen discusses his own personal use of medical cannabis and advocates for national reform.

“We need to work from the principles of freedom and compassion and let the policy grow from there,” says Madsen. “I believe we should allow individuals and their physicians to make their own decisions on whether medical cannabis is an augmentation or an alternative to other traditional medical treatments. Government has no legitimate place in that process.”

In the exclusive interview for the April 20th, 2015 episode #4 of the 8 week Drug Policy Project of Utah video series released at, Madsen revealed that in 2007, he was nearly killed by an accidental overdose of fentanyl when a patch his doctor prescribed accidentally tore and released a fatal dose of the opiate.

Madsen was the sponsor of recent legislation in the state, S.B. 259, which would have legalized the cultivation, production, sale and possession of whole-plant medical cannabis for a range of conditions. ( The bill was narrowly defeated by one flipped vote in the senate in March.

Shortly before introducing S.B. 259, Madsen travelled to Colorado to try medical cannabis, which he said provided great relief for his chronic back pain. In the video interview at, Madsen says that he was inspired by the families lobbying for legislation which was passed in 2014 legalizing high-CBD medical cannabis extracts for epileptic patients.

“[These children] had been struggling with severe seizures up to the point of death,” Madsen says. “I realized it was misguided government policy that was keeping relief from these innocents and I started to take a different perspective. It wasn’t just about me and my back pain. There are other people suffering, and suffering worse than I, who could benefit from this. When it became an issue that was not just about me I realized I had to do something.”

Madsen is a Republican Utah State Senator representing the 13th District, which includes some of the most conservative parts of the traditionally conservative state. Madsen was born in Washington D.C. and raised in Colorado. He is a proud NRA member and attorney who has championed libertarian causes during his tenure in the Utah State Senate.

Madsen is the grandson of Ezra Taft Benson, President Eisenhower’s secretary of agriculture and president and prophet of the Mormon Church from the mid-eighties until the time of his death in 1994.

The video interview was released as a collaboration between the Drug Policy Project of Utah and Illegally Healed. For more information, please visit:
