Excerpted from ASA's 2022 State of the States Report.

In 2023, ASA recommends that, in order to best serve medical cannabis patients, state legislators make it a top priority to repeal the rollbacks that have damaged the medical program. ASA is disturbed by the direction Colorado policymakers have chosen to take with regards to medical cannabis laws; Colorado must act quickly before these policies devastate the state’s patient population and create a crisis of access and health equity in the state. In light of the adult use/recreational laws, Colorado should also focus on passing provisions included in ASA’s Medical Cannabis Equity Checklist.
