Alex Buscher, Esq. is the founder of Buscher Law LLC, a firm focused regulatory compliance, corporate law, securities, trademarks, food & drug law, and commercial transactions. Current clients include hemp cultivators, processors, retailers, investors, and retail product manufacturers. Buscher previously chaired the NCIA hemp committee, and was the primary drafter of the NCIA public comments to the USDA hemp rules in 2019.
Buscher gained a wide array of regulatory, negotiation, and drafting experience through lobbying cannabis bills at the Colorado State Capitol, sitting on multiple state regulatory workgroups including Marijuana Sunset and CHAMPS, interning for a State Senator, and negotiating entertainment contracts for country artists represented by William Morris Endeavor in Nashville, Tennessee.
Buscher has extensive knowledge regarding nationwide cannabis regulation, including a keen understanding of the critical importance of sensible and distinct marijuana, hemp, and cannabinoid-specific regulations. While earning his J.D. from Sturm College of Law at the University of Denver, Buscher co-authored a groundbreaking legal research paper regarding the interstate legality of cannabidiol (CBD), which was requested during summer 2018 by then Colorado Congressman Jared Polis' office. Alex continues to research the legality of CBD under the statutes and regulations of all 50 states and has worked directly with lobbyists and legislators in multiple states to help craft some of the state passed hemp legislation in 2019.
During law school, Alex was integral in launching a highly innovative and well-known brand, where he learned first-hand the importance of conscientious legal, marketing, formulation, sales, and business practices in such a layered and complicated industry.
Alex has always enjoyed the environment and outdoor activities that make Colorado so incredible. On the weekends you can find him breaking trail in remote alpine basins, climbing crags, mountain biking backcountry singletrack, or snowboarding Telluride, Wolf Creek, or Vail.
