Lawmakers to Decide on Marijuana Bills by Midweek

MARIJUANA-300It’s safe to say marijuana is an issue Colorado lawmakers will be dealing with routinely for the foreseeable future – and this year is a perfect example of that. Before they go home, lawmakers still have to decide on whether to allow a banking co-op for recreational marijuana businesses, and if there should be a study on new regulations for pot edibles and purchasing limits on the drug in its concentrated form. They also are debating how to spend new recreational marijuana tax revenues. A $23 million spending plan has been proposed by the Joint Budget Committee and is making its way through both chambers of the Legislature.
