As the Enforcement Division tasked with the regulation of Colorado's two marijuana industries (Medical and Retail), the MED is responsible for providing the rules under which these industries are expected to operate. All rules are written in response to the direction and authority provided by state statute. These rules are put in place in accordance with the Colorado Administrative Procedures Act and no permanent rules are enacted without formal public comment hearings. Additionally, the MED has instituted the use of stakeholder working groups to generate the initial draft of proposed rules with which to begin the formal rulemaking process.
