Two New Pot Bills Signed Into Law in Colorado
As Colorado continues to figure out this whole legal pot thing this will be a continuing theme. The bills that went into law today (March 17) actually don't really affect consumers at all, but instead those in the marijuana industry.
The first measure requires edible marijuana sold to medical marijuana patients to meet the same packaging standards as pot sold to recreational customers. The packaging must be opaque and childproof... DUH!
The second measure allows local governments that want to run criminal background checks on people working in the marijuana industry to submit fingerprints to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation... DUH!
As for any new laws coming, Gov. John Hickenlooper says it's too soon to consider a new law limiting potency or making other big changes to the marijuana market.
