Laws: Constitution, Statutes and Rules - Marijuana Enforcement

In accordance with direction and mandates provided via the C.R.S.,  the Division promulgates regulations under which Colorado's Medical and Retail MarijuMarijuana industries expected to operate.  These regulations are put in place in accordance with the Colorado Administrative Procedures Act (C.R.S.24-4-101 et. seq.) 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.

Industry Bulletins
At times it is necessary to provide industry members with time-sensitive information that provides additional guidance, short-term modification or clarification of compliance mandates. In those instances, the MED issues Industry Bulletins.  Industry Bulletins that are issued prior to current statutory provisions or rules may reference statutory provisions or rules that are no longer in effect.  The Marijuana Enforcement Division does not endorse or reject such bulletins.  Please seek legal counsel if you have questions as to the validity of such Industry Bulletins.
