About Us

The Southern Colorado Cannabis Council is an industry and community based organization dedicated to promoting the health and well-being of Medical Marijuana patients, Recreational Consumers, Owners, and Caregivers through steadfast, self-regulation of the Colorado Medical Marijuana industry. We also combine years of experience to work on political issues at the state and local level on behalf of our members.


The Council provides education, industry-wide standardization, legislative representation, and best practices that advance the cause of marijuana therapeutics by creating an environment in which safe access to safe medicines are a top priority. The Council constantly strives to have a positive impact on Colorado through dedicated outreach programs to other local businesses, legislators, organizations, and leaders.
