Colorado regulators won’t sanction job-seekers with out-of-state cannabis convictions
State agencies also won't cooperate in any out-of-state investigations into lawful marijuana conduct that occurs in Colorado.
Gov. Jared Polis last week vowed by executive order that Colorado will not hold out-of-state convictions for most marijuana-related offenses against people applying for professional licenses here.
The Boulder Democrat wrote in his order, “There is a workforce shortage in Colorado. Employers are having difficulty recruiting and retaining qualified employees, many of whom need professional licenses. The exclusion of people from the workforce because of marijuana-related activities that are lawful in Colorado, but illegal in other states, hinders our economy and our state.”
