VS Strategies, LLC is a government relations, issue advocacy, and strategic communications firm dedicated to advancing the cannabis industry in a dynamic yet responsible manner. We serve government bodies, cannabis businesses, and other individuals and organizations seeking to shape public opinion and implement the most effective marijuana laws.
We are not just another lobbying and public affairs firm. We are specialists in marijuana policy and marijuana advocacy, with an unparalleled track record in this field. Collectively, our team has literally changed the course of marijuana history. We have been engaged in advocacy efforts across the country – and even internationally – but we are most proud of our work in Colorado, where VS Strategies team members have been key figures in changing the culture and the business climate surrounding marijuana. As a result, the marijuana market has been transformed from an underground industry into a flourishing regulated industry with 2014 estimated sales of more than $600 million.
VS Strategies is affiliated with Vicente Sederberg, LLC, one of the world’s leading marijuana industry law firms. In April 2014, Colorado’s 5280 Magazine recognized Vicente Sederberg LLC as one of “The Most Powerful People in Denver” (placing the firm at No. 9) and highlighted the team’s new emphasis on government relations and consulting:
A few months into [Colorado’s] grand experiment, legalization seems to be working rather well, and more people are turning to [Vicente Sederberg] for input and advice about their own implementation plans. (Longtime progressive activist Ted Trimpa, a frequent adjunct to our list, joined Vicente Sederberg LLC last fall, and several other veteran attorneys have recently been added as the firm expands its advisory and lobbying efforts beyond Colorado’s borders.) Thanks to Vicente Sederberg’s devotion to the cause, our state—and Denver in particular—may one day be seen as the birthplace of the well-executed modern drug policy.
