Legalisation of marijuana in Colorado set to spawn generation of weed lawyers


The University of Denver has moved to take advantage of the legalisation of marijuana in Colorado by launching a dope law module.

The course, entitled ‘Representing The Marijuana Client’, began on Friday, with one of the 35 students on it taking to Reddit to share a photo of the textbooks (pictured above).

Taught by Professor Sam Kamin, a specialist in criminal and constitutional law, the course’s objective is — as you can see from the blurb below — to school wannabe lawyers on how to work with the cannabis industry.


The legalisation of marijuana for recreational use in Colorado took place between November 2012 and September 2013, with the first shops selling weed opening in January last year.
