Scott Pack was one of the most flamboyant marijuana entrepreneurs in Colorado — a handsome, stylish charmer with seemingly inexhaustible wealth and a way with words that was catnip to individuals looking to cash in on an industry growing at a breakneck pace.
But then, just over three years ago, Pack’s world slowly but inexorably started going to hell. In the spring of 2017, a lawsuit accused him of being a ripoff artist and, mere months later, he found himself at the center of what was touted at the time as the largest marijuana fraud indictment in state history.
