Dan left too early, but he led one interesting life while he was here
Dan Anglin left too early, but he led one interesting life while he was here.
A former lobbyist and one of Colorado’s early business owners in the marijuana edibles space, Anglin passed away on June 12 after suffering a heart attack days earlier, according to his wife, Diana. He was 52.
A Denver native, Anglin joined the United States Marine Corps after high school and served in Desert Storm. He attended the University of Arizona after serving in the military, and began pursuing a career in public policy, working in various roles for the Arizona and Colorado state legislatures. Anglin then transitioned to government affairs jobs, which is how he found a path toward edibles.
Anglin made a name for himself at the State Capitol working on the Colorado Legislative Council and then as a lobbyist for the Colorado Association of Commerce. He founded his own public affairs firm in 2011, and eventually contracted with EdiPure, a now-defunct marijuana edibles company, to lobby on behalf of the edibles sector. At the time, state lawmakers were considering an outright ban on marijuana-infused products in Colorado’s medical marijuana market. Anglin, one of the few conservative lobbyists working on behalf of the marijuana industry at the time, played a part in making sure that didn’t happen.
