Cindy Sovine


Cindy has over 22 years of government relations experience working on local, state and federal issues. She is very effective at helping highly regulated industries achieve their goals and successfully navigate ever-changing legislative, regulatory and political environments. She is a Colorado native who grew up farming and ranching in eastern Colorado. Cindy spent much of her career working in health care and early childhood education until she began working in cannabis policy in 2016 after her step-dad’s journey with lymphatic cancer and seeing firsthand how cannabis alleviated his suffering and provided a quality of life that traditional treatments could not provide. She now works in hemp, marijuana, and psychedelic policy and speaks all over the country helping states create sound policies. In addition to passing numerous cannabis industry and social justice bills, Cindy was the Lead Political Strategist on the Decriminalize Denver Campaign, the nation’s first successful campaign to decimalize psilocybin. She also successfully led the statewide effort to amend the Constitution in 2018 (Amendment X) to ensure Colorado’s hemp laws remain competitive nationwide.
