Pot regulations get more review in Colorado
Last Updated: 254 days ago
DENVER - A House-Senate committee looking at marijuana regulation is scheduled to meet again.
The committee has extended its work and meets again Monday.
Amendment 64 approved by voters last year allows marijuana use by adults over 21. However, state lawmakers need to decide on regulations such as how marijuana should be taxed and how to handle product safety.
A bill to regulate marijuana now isn't expected until the middle part of April. That leaves lawmakers just a few weeks to come up with regulations.
A Colorado task force made up of law enforcement, government officials and marijuana advocates sent the state legislature 58 recommendations.
