Law school holding summit on marijuana laws

The University of Denver Sturm College of Law is holding a summit on federal and state marijuana laws.

Those attending the gathering on Friday include marijuana providers, attorneys and experts.

Colorado’s booming medical marijuana industry is regulated like no other. Public officials say they are tracking, measuring and taxing pot from seed to sale after voters approved the use of medical marijuana.

The controls were thought to protect Colorado’s 700 or so medical marijuana dispensaries from a federal crackdown, but federal authorities say that won’t exempt dispensaries from federal prosecution.
