Colorado Now Allows Marijuana Ads on Billboards, but Denver Doesn't

Denver hasn't adopted a new state law allowing marijuana industry billboards in Colorado, but that could change soon.

State laws implemented in January let marijuana companies advertise outdoors using billboards, but as with many new pot freedoms, local jurisdictions have to opt in first. And so far, Denver hasn't.

Colorado’s current marijuana advertising laws, created by the State Licensing Authority, follow voluntary advertising restrictions similar to those used by the alcohol industry to prevent the sale or diversion of marijuana to minors. However, the plant's federal status led to a more restrictive advertising landscape for pot than for alcohol.

Marijuana Legalization Does Not Lead To More Teens Smoking Pot, Studies Find

According to new studies, the legalization of marijuana doesn’t lead to teens using more weed. And in the case of Colorado, the amount of teen use went slightly down after voters in the state made cannabis legal.

Those findings stand in direct contradiction to a popular argument that legalization would lead to the rampant use of marijuana by underage teens. Even though 15 states have now legalized recreational marijuana, it’s an issue that makes some hesitate to support legalization.

Why Social Equity Matters For Cannabis, And What States Are Doing About It

The means of commercially producing, selling, and profiting from cannabis are, so far, incredibly concentrated in the hands of white business owners.

Introduction to social equity

Let’s get one thing straight — the world needs cannabis. Even as far back as 485 BC (just about 1,500 years ago), Greek historian Herodotus described the pot- smoking rituals of ancient Scythians.

In China, archaeologists uncovered evidence of cannabis use dating back 2,500 years. When considered in this light, cannabis is a human right — and a sacred one at that.

What does all of this have to do with social equity in the cannabis industry here and now?

Processing and CBD Extraction in Colorado’s Hemp Hub

For many who choose to live and work in Northern Colorado’s agricultural communities, there’s more to love than just the picturesque mountains in the distance or the easy accessibility to major metropolitan hubs like Denver and Fort Collins.
