Local Government Regulation of Industrial Hemp in Colorado
Describe the basic legal framework under Colorado state law for the regulation of industrial hemp. This framework appears to reserve the power to regulate industrial hemp exclusively to the state. Yet a number of local governments around Colorado have attempted to either prohibit or regulate industrial hemp cultivation and related activities, primarily by means of their power to control land use through zoning, but occasionally involving other police powers of local governments. Some efforts by local government standing direct conflict with state law, giving rise to questions about the nature and extent of the authority of local governments to regulate industrial hemp.
