John Hickenlooper’s Amendment 64 Implementation Task Force. He also sat on the executive committee of the Committee for Responsible Regulation, which coordinated the campaign to establish statewide excise and sales taxes on the sale of adult-use marijuana in Colorado.
Christian currently serves on the boards of the Cannabis Trade Federation and Colorado Leads, and he previously served as a board member for the National Cannabis Industry Association.
