DENVER — One new industry to regulate and less than two months to do it. That’s the challenge facing the task force charged with drafting new rules for recreational marijuana in Colorado.
The November passage of Amendment 64 has now made those regulations necessary.
On Thursday, two of the task force’s five subgroups met to sort through some of the complex issues involved.
Deb Palm-Egle, a medical marijuana patient, was among those who attended.
“I want to know why I should ever get a license again and get on a public register,” Palm-Egle said.
“I want to know what the benefits are going be for a medical marijuana patient compared to somebody off the street, and I want to know what they’re going to do.”
