The Department of Administrative and Financial Services (DAFS) has made significant progress in implementing the Marijuana Legalization Act. Under the leadership of Director Erik Gundersen, DAFS established the Office of Marijuana Policy (OMP) to oversee all aspects of legalized marijuana. 

Since March 22, 2019, OMP has been engaged in rulemaking work with Freedman & Koski of Colorado. In April 2019, OMP announced that it had partnered with BOTEC Analysis of Los Angeles to provide an additional layer of review to the internal rulemaking process.
