‘Moving On From Marijuana’: Boulder DA Set To Clear Minor Pot Convictions
(Colorado, Recreational, United States) BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – The City of Boulder is following Denver’s lead in helping people with minor pot convictions clear their records. The initiative is called “”Moving On from Marijuana.” It will allow those who have been convicted of use or possession of small amounts of the drug to petition the district’s courts to have the convictions sealed and expunged. (Photo Credit: Thinkstock) The initiative is similar to the program that Denver rolled out on Wednesday . Colorado voters approved Amendment 64 in November 2012 permitting medical and recreational marijuana use, including possession of less than an ounce. Retail pot went on sale Jan. 1, 2014. Petitioners must meet qualifications for their conviction to be considered. The office has set aside a meeting time on Jan. 15, from 1-3 p.m. — for interested parties to consult with staffers about their options. People will then be able to apply for the program online at the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office .

Recreational Marijuana Sales Might Not Be Hurting the Alcohol Industry After All
(Alcohol, Colorado, Legalization, Oregon, Recreational, United States, Washington) Recreational marijuana sales might not be having as large an impact on the alcohol industry as we previously thought.A new study out Thursday, conducted by The Distilled Spirits Council, found that spirits sales in states that have legalized recreational marijuana have actually grown since that legalization.For its report, it looked at state-level alcohol tax receipts and actual alcohol shipment data in three states: Colorado, Washington and Oregon between 2014—when marijuana was legalized—and 2017. According to its analysis, per capita, spirits sales increased between 3.6 percent and 7.6 percent in those states since recreational marijuana legalization went into effect. Colorado is up 7.6 percent; Washington state is up 5.4 percent; and Oregon is up 3.6 percent, all on-par with the national average for the same time period, 5.4 percent. Read more ]]>

The global cannabis market is expected to reach $57 billion by 2027 , according to Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics. Hundreds of entrepreneurs with innovative brands and products are vying for a piece of the pie, but without the right financial and expert support most will have to settle for crumbs. Cannabis is a capital intensive industry — which can pose a problem for companies with great business plans, big ideas, but not much experience in securing financing and navigating the complex process of taking a company public. We often think of this as a dilemma unique to very early-stage startups, but many successful late-stage startups often find themselves unable to enter the next stage in their growth cycle due to a lack of financing.
