This week we speak to Michael Weiner Partner @ Dorsey & Whitney Denver (CO) about recent legislation brought in by the CO legislature to provide state loans to equity cannabis businesses in the state.
The pot is small to start with, only $1 million to share out in year one but Michael says it looks like it is a program the state wants to build.

His practice focuses on the representation of emerging growth companies in the areas of corporate formation, mergers and acquisitions, venture capital and angel finance, public offerings, and securities regulation.
