DENVER (AP) - A Colorado law firm specializing in marijuana law has endowed a professorship at the University of Denver.
~
The three-year endowment is believed to be the first funded by the new marijuana industry.
 
The professorship at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law will be held initially by Sam Kamin, who teaches about cannabis law and helped write Colorado's regulations on the industry.
 
The law firm, Vicente Sederberg, has committed $45,000 a year for the professorship. Law partner Brian Vicente attended the University of Denver and wrote Colorado's 2012 constitutional amendment making pot legal for recreational use. The firm now consults business owners in the industry.
