A Denver law firm that focuses on cannabis law has sponsored a prestigious Colorado law school with a three-year, $45,000 professorship for marijuana law and policy, The Cannabist has exclusively learned.
The University of Denver’s Sturm College of Law professor Sam Kamin will be the first Vicente Sederberg Professor of Marijuana Law and Policy at the private college headquartered in south Denver.

So it’s an honor to be getting this.” [Read more at The Cannabist at The Denver Post]
