Pesticide Use on Cannabis in Colorado — A Conversation with Brenna Finn
This week, I sat down with Brenna Finn, Assistant Attorney General, Colorado Department of Law. I am proud to report that Brenna was a law intern here at the firm years ago, as Brenna began her legal career, and pleased to report that her experience with the firm focused her career, in part, on chemical regulation. Brenna’s substantive skills in Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) and Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) regulation have served her well in private practice and prepared her for her current position with the State of Colorado Attorney General’s office, where Brenna heads up the Agricultural Unit in the Business & Licensing Section of the Colorado Department of Law. Brenna enforces the Department’s pesticide registration and application laws, among other responsibilities. Brenna is also an adjunct law professor at the University of Denver, Sturm College of Law, where she teaches Food and Pesticide Regulation. After briefly summarizing Brenna’s successful career, we discuss Colorado’s regulation of pesticides used on cannabis and the key enforcement issues on which Brenna’s unit focuses. We also review other enforcement priorities in the State, as Colorado grows many crops in addition to cannabis.
