Adam Trenk, Rose Law Group partner and cannabis department director, chats with KJZZ about recreational marijuana matters

By Mark Brodie | KJZZ

MARK BRODIE: But first, Arizona voters have overwhelmingly approved legalizing recreational marijuana in the state, so once the vote is made official, the new law can start being implemented. But there will likely be legal questions as this new program is being rolled out. With me to talk through some of them is Adam Trenk, a partner at the Rose Law Group, where he’s the director of the Cannabis Law Department. And Adam, what are some of the biggest legal issues and questions that need to be resolved as we move into the implementation of Prop. 207?

ADAM TRENKSo there’s two baskets, if you will. The first is the expungement of those folks who have criminal records — the expungement of their marijuana related convictions. That will begin sometime in July of next year, while the state and the county prosecutor’s offices are in turn kicking out those pending prosecutions. So big moves, that. And then the second basket, if you will, is the licensure of recreational dispensaries throughout the state, which will involve the issuances of business licenses to entities who are going to sell marijuana commercially and generate tax revenue for the public’s benefit.
