Legalizing Marijuana: Potholes and Possibilities

Colorado and Washington are trailblazers in legalized marijuana, but the potholes and blind curves are plenty. Among them: the potential for revenue, licensing businesses, regulating practices and products, enforcement and more.

What you'll learn:

  • All the matters you might not anticipate, regulation of edibles and new cannabis products.
  • The money—how much to expect, tax rates, and revenue estimates.
  • What drugged driving looks like from the experts enforcing it in the field.


  • Senator Jeanne E. Kohl-Welles, Washington
  • Joseph Henchman, Tax Foundation, Washington, D.C.
  • Representative Daniel Pabon, Colorado
