Yesterday the chair of Colorado’s Joint Select Committee on the Implementation of Amendment 64 Task Force Recommendations, a committee established by Colorado’s legislature to form legislation to help regulate legal marijuana sales, introduced a 57-page bill that would do just that. The measure contains a majority of the recommendations that were made by a marijuana task force commissioned by Colorado’s governor to discuss and determine potential regulations.
• Marijuana growers and sellers could operate separately, opposite of the requirements for medical-marijuana dispensaries.
• Only Colorado residents could own or work in marijuana retail outlets
• Out-of-state residents would be legally allowed to purchase, possess and consume cannabis, so they would only be able to purchase a quarter of an ounce, rather than a full ounce like residents can.
