With an extensive background working for the government and in shaping marijuana regulations, Jordan has a unique perspective to help his clients with regulatory compliance and government affairs.
In 2013, Jordan served as the sole legislative staffer assigned to shepherd Amendment 64 legislation and the legalization of marijuana through the Colorado General Assembly. He was then hired by the Colorado Department of Revenue's Marijuana Enforcement Division to serve as the sole policy analyst during the development and drafting of the rules governing the state's retail marijuana industry and the revised rules governing medical marijuana. During his time with the Marijuana Enforcement Division, Jordan drafted rules governing testing, cultivation, product manufacturing, concentrate production, retail distribution, production management, transportation, certification of laboratories, labeling, packaging, and storage. He also organized the Division's entire stakeholder engagement process and personally chaired several of the working groups.
A testament to his experience and influence, Jordan was selected in 2014 to serve on the Marijuana Research Advisory Group convened by the Colorado School of Public Health at University of Colorado Denver. He also serves on the Advisory Board on Good Marijuana Cultivation and Handling Practices convened by the Colorado Department of Agriculture. In addition to his deep experience shaping Colorado marijuana regulations, Jordan also worked for the New Jersey Legislature, New York Assemblyman Jonathan Bing, and the Epilepsy Foundation of New Jersey.
