Colorado May Pass a Bill to Restrict The Marijuana Industry

State lawmakers already approved House Bill 1317 with overwhelming support; now it just needs the governor’s signature.

Colorado Road Sign With Marijuana Leaf

When you think of liberal cannabis laws, Colorado is probably near the top of the list. However, according to a recent MJBizDaily article, the Colorful State will likely add restrictions to their marijuana industry, pending the signature of Gov. Jared Polis. If passed, House Bill 1317 would:

  • Roll back the customer purchase limit for high-potency concentrates to 8 grams per day, roughly a fifth of the current limit.
  • Require warnings on packages for concentrates as well as guidance on serving sizes.
  • Authorize a new real-time tracking system to monitor the concentrate purchase limits.
  • Mandate that the state School of Public Health examine existing cannabis research to look for “physical and mental health effects of high-potency THC marijuana and concentrates.”
  • Add more rules to ensure patients 18-20 years old have a “substantial” relationship with their physician so it’s more difficult for them to obtain medical marijuana registrations.
