Managing Partner, VS Strategies
Steve Fox, Esq., is of counsel at the Denver-based law firm Vicente Sederberg LLC and is the Managing Partner of VS Strategies, an affiliated cannabis policy consulting firm. He has been at the center of cannabis policy reform in the United States for 17 years through his works as director of federal policy for Marijuana Policy Project (MPP). He was the lead author of Colorado’s historic Amendment 64 ballot measure, which made marijuana legal for all adults in that state, and managed all aspects that campaign in 2011-2012. In 2010, seeing the need to raise the profile of the nascent cannabis industry in Washington, DC, Steve conceptualized and co-founded the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA). For the next eight years, he served as a strategic advisor to NCIA and, in early 2017, helped the organization launch its Policy Council, which he directed. Today, he serves as a strategic advisor to the Cannabis Trade Federation.
