Back in the summer of 2017, I flew to Denver to witness one of the cannabis industry’s first political fundraisers.
By campaign standards it was a cheap ticket: $100 a head to support Rep. Jared Polis, the 420-friendly congressman who wanted to replace Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper.
Glamorous it was not. We sipped cheap wine from plastic cups in the spartan offices of Vicente Sederberg, the legal firm that hadn’t yet grown into the national powerhouse it is today.
