Lunch & Learn - 2016 MED Rulemaking / October Changes

Hosted by 5700 Consulting

2016 MED Rulemaking / October Changes Presented by Amanda Ostrowitz, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer of CannaRegs. Hosted by 5700 Consulting In late July 2016, the MED published its initial proposed amendments to the Colorado retail and medical marijuana regulations. By August 26, 2016 the MED will release another draft of the proposed changes. On September 2nd the MED will hold its annual rule-making hearing where they will walk through the proposed changes and take public comment. Then the waiting period begins. Last year the amendments were published 45 days after the hearing. This year there are fewer proposed amendments so it could be sooner, but who knows? One thing we know is that the MED is unpredictable. So what can we expect? That’s what we will cover on Sept. 7th at the October Lunch & Learn! We will go over some of the most important changes regarding: New license type for Transporters Testing Edibles Packaging & Labeling Potency Statements Performance-based employee compensation Advertising About Amanda: Amanda Ostrowitz, Esq. is the Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer of CannaRegs.
