Medical marijuana HB 1250 bill would outlaw MMJ edibles: Read it here

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for medical marijuana lollipop.jpg
At 1:30 p.m. today, the public can comment on HB 1043, a medical marijuana bill described as a cleanup measure of last year's bill by its co-sponsors, Senator Pat Steadman and Representative Tom Massey. But the Cannabis Therapy Institute's Laura Kriho also plans to address HB 1250, a brand new effort to ban MMJ edibles.

HB 1250 is co-sponsored by Representatives Cindy Acree and Senator Scott Renfroe, with co-sponsors including recently censured rep David Balmer and Senator Kent Lambert, a November Shmuck of the Week. And while the measure isn't officially on the agenda for this afternoon, Kriho says, "Cannabis Therapy Institute is putting it on the agenda."

Laura Kriho.
The bill, on view below, is among the simpler pieces of legislation to be put forward this session. As stated in its summary, HB 1250 "would prohibit medical marijuana-infused consumable food and beverage product manufacturing and sale" by amending a portion of HB 1284, the state's primary medical marijuana regulatory measure. Specifically, the words "consumption" and "edible products" would be excised from one paragraph of the law, signed by former Governor Bill Ritter last June.

Kriho's take? "The Cannabis Therapy Institute has always felt the sum of 1284 violates the constitution" -- specifically Amendment 20, which legalized medical marijuana in Colorado. "So this is just another step in implementing an unconstitutional law. And you can't restrict a patient's medicine, and which ways a patient chooses to take his medicine, whether it be pill form, liquid form, or whatever. It should be up to them.

"This is the most tested medicine in the history of the human race," she continues. "Humans have been using it continuously for 10,000 years, and there's never been a death from an overdose. There's no toxicity level on this plant, and you can't even say that about water or potatoes. One of the only negative things anyone's ever been able to say about it is that smoking it sometimes irritates people's lungs -- so people who want to get away from the lung-irritant factor eat it. And now, they're going to force them to use a method that, for them, is more unhealthy because they're going to ban edibles?"

In Kriho's view, it's vitally important for citizens to share their objections about this bill, and problematic aspects of 1043, with the judiciary committee today. "There are only one or two times you can talk to the state legislature on these issues -- and this is one of those times," she says. "Democrats haven't been on our side, but Republicans are even less on our side, and because the Republicans control the House, some of these more restrictive ideas are going to have legs they didn't have last year."

Here's the bill:

I was one of the licensed Colorado Medical Marijuana Patients that was there almost two hours before the House Judiciary took testimony and been involved in the industry for some time. This was for HB11-1250 on Tuesday March 01, 2011.

First the bill’s sponsor told the press that the testimony would start at approximately 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM. With nearly 100 MMJ Patients there at 11:00 AM to testify, a hand written paper sign was taped to the door stating that the testimony for HB 11-1250 would not start until 1:00 PM. This caused many Patients and advocates that planned to testify to leave, realizing they had to make their other commitments for the day as well.

When the testimony finally did start, the entire public found out for the first time that the bill’s sponsor, Representative Cindy Acree decided to entirely change the bill’s purpose and wanted to add amendments that would continue to allow edibles and the bill would only be about the labeling, packing and marketing of edibles! This is quite a change at the very last moment to inform everyone.

Rep. Acree at the beginning of the testimony brought out commercial products to show how this can affect children. She presented a box of Quaker Oats brand Capt. Crunch, Sparkling Lime Soda made by Izze of Boulder, CO, Crispy Marshmallow Bites and Soakers Fruit Snacks, both made by Target. There were no actual examples of any MMJ edibles! (So we are lead to believe that these products can be associated to MMJ edibles!)

The pictures of the “Pot Tarts” and the “Cap’n Chronic” were brought up repeatedly by Rep. Waller. He seemed to be deeply troubled by these pictures. The odd thing about these two products was the fact that no one in the audience was actually aware of these products. None of the dispensary owners sold the product, no Patients had ever seen the products in question and no one there could produce an example. Fortunately there is WiFi for the public to use and quickly research was done. Apparently more research was done during the next hour than had been done by Rep. Acree before she wrote this bill!

Come to find out that the “Pot Tarts” had never been sold in Colorado and the picture came from a 1986 DEA bust in California! The “Cap’n Chronic Cereal” image is of a famous stoner T-shirt and has NEVER been sold as an edible anywhere! These two items were harped on time and time again by Rep. Waller. If these House Representatives want to make laws for real Patients, they had better get their facts correct first!

Being in the MMJ industry here in Colorado, I can assure the public, as well as the many business owners that testified, this industry is pretty well self-policed. This was said over and over. It was also pointed out by Matt Cook of the Department of Revenue and some of the other representatives, as well as by Patients and advocates that HB10-1284 already includes six pages of rules and regulations about labeling, packing and marketing of these edibles and is far more thought out than this bill. This new bill is nothing more than over reaching and redundancy.

Rep. Acree said that there probably would be future amendments and that the bill may change again entirely. The Committee did not vote on the bill or the amendments, which means that the edible ban is still on the table too. So it was unclear why Rep. Acree moved forward with the bill and wasted 6 hours of testimony from the public on a bill that really hasn't even been written yet.

As stated, I got there just after 11:00 AM and it was not until about 5:25 PM before I was able to testify myself! I pointed out how this bill was nothing more than fear mongering and redundancy.

The next step will be for the House Judiciary Committee to meet again and consider all amendments to the bill, including new ones not yet written. However, they will not take any more public testimony before they vote.

Having said all this, I think the People of Colorado could be far better served by our Public Servants, those we voted into office, if they would actually be doing something that is creatively good for the public. This bill was obviously ill-conceived and never should have been brought before the House.

Ugh I have asthma as well as three bulging discs and degenerative spine disease...and I'm only 31. I rely heavily on edibles for pain management, this has worked so much better for me and allowed me to continue working and doing activities I enjoy without being zoned out from pain meds, addicted to pain meds, or suffering the horrible side effects of pain meds! I don't understand who this benefits...meanwhile it seems like it's going to harm many of us who really need access to something besides smokable green. Guess I'll get back into the kitchen :)

OMG! Look! It's something shiny!

This bill, at best, is political posturing by people who have been posturing politically around cannabis for more than a year. It NEVER had a chance of making it out of committee in anything close to it's current form, even if people weren't screaming at legislators and alienating them from wanting to help.

At worst, it's a chess move in a much longer game plan that it's sponsors will be playing for a long time to come.

If so, we're in trouble. If so, they think we're easily distractible, energy wasteful, and overly excitable and they know that they can win the long game against us. And you what? They're right. This community is in some desperate need of savvy and strategic thinkers leading the pack, not obstructive reactionaries.

From what I've read, the bill is not designed to outlaw all edible products but would rather issue requirements for packaging and ban only some infused products. The Colorado Independent is running a story that can be found here: http://coloradoindependent.com...

Dear Massey, Romer, Levy, Steadman and other Medicine Saboteurs:

Stop trying to undermine the Will of Coloradoans and stop messing with our medical care? I need cannabis edibles to survive, get it? You are meddling-in and negatively affecting my medical care. Enough is enough.

How hard is that to understand?

The people have already spoken more than a decade ago, and our elected reps need to stop messing with our constitutional rights; or we should start singling the Dunces and the Crooks out -- one by one -- and sue them to smithereens for attempting to block our constitutionally-protected, physician-recommended medical care. Is suing these saboteurs a legal possibility? If so, we should move on it today.

What the hell is going on with these slimy, against-the-will-of-the-people, medicine saboteurs, like Massey and Romer? Their non-stop efforts to dismantle the Will of Coloradoans are chilling.

Given all the real crime in Colorado (harming or threatening another person), especially the ridiculous number of unsolved murders, it is an egregious misuse of our scarce resources to spend so much time trying to destroy Colorado's medical marijuana rights, instead of fine-tuning them, and focusing on violent crime. Make no mistake: whether the continued efforts to dismantle Coloradoans' constitutional right to medical cannabis stem from glaring ignorance or from politicians getting paid off, we patients will continue to fight the medical saboteurs and they will soon be defeated and then included in the history of cannabis propaganda, along with Harry Anslinger, Richard Nixon and William Hearst.

It is tyrannical and just plain wrong that a few corrupt politicians can undermine the will of their people and undermine the practice of medicine, with little to no consequences.

These legislators are BLPs (backward looking people), endocannabinoid deficient in their ability to be open-minded. These un-high people have a pathological fear of change. They are unable to embrace current scientific knowledge as to why cannabis is so uniquely able to help so many people with so many ailments. They cannot embrace what their medical marijuana constituency is saying. All FLPs (forward looking people) open-minded people must unite and prevent these primitive people from continuing to harm others. drbob

And now, they're going to force them to use a method that, for them, is more unhealthy because they're going to ban edibles?"

That's the crux of it right there. As a medicine, edibles are safer than smoking and have benefits that you can't get from smoking marijuana. What we have to realize is that these lawmakers still aren't viewing marijuana as a medicine, but as a drug, and they're attempting to legislate accordingly (against the wishes of the voters of Colorado as expressed in Amendment 20).

Everybody--please read the bill, then calm down. The bill prohibits the manufacture and sale of edibles EXCEPT those foods or beverages that are ingested orally. Thus the bill makes no sense on its face. However, it may be lobbied hard by the pro-lung cancer community.

A few people have posted here discussing the operations of some of the larger centers that have supported this onerous regulatory environment. One of the largest supporters and main sources of funding for the support of these regulations is RiverRock Wellness and Norton Albarez.

The irony of this is that from what I can tell RiverRock is perhaps the most ILLEGAL operation in Colorado. Here's why:

-RiverRock was established and began operating as a wholesale only business at least 6 months prior to even attempting to open their retail center. To me this seems to mean that they were not serving their patients and had simply purchased a patient list from somewhere, perhaps GreenDocs where Albarez was the managing partner, or another disreputable doctor referral service.

-RiverRock has wholesaled nearly 90% of the volume that they have produced, in flagrant violation of the intent of 1284 regarding vertical integration.

-RiverRock holds both an infused products license and a OPCL for their MMC. If I understand the facts correctly they cultivate for both operations in the same OPCL. Whenever their plant count for the MMC gets too high, or if asked by state officials, they simply claim that the plant or plants in question are for the Infused Products business and not subject to plant count limits, despite the fact that they can provide no tracking or evidence to support the fact that the product was used exclusively for the Infused Products. Even if documentation was presented given the loose monitoring requirements currently in place we have no evidence except that which RiverRock generates.

-Despite the health standards required in 1284 employees of RiverRock have explained how it is a common RiverRock business practice to dip each marijuana flower into a 5 gallon bucket of water at harvest to wash off spider mites and powdery mildew.

-RiverRocks ownership base and funding are questionable as members of the company were out of state residents who moved here specifically to take advantage of Colorado's MMJ laws, including Albarez himself, who moved from Louisiana. Hence RiverRocks substantial lobbying on behalf of removing the residency requirement for owners.(Rob Corry does that part of the talking, not his fault, just doing what he was paid for)

RiverRock has time and time again been held out by Matt Cook as the the ideal business model and a sterling example of how an MMC should operate. Really Mr. Cook, a group of out of state crooks intent on hi-jacking what should be a locally sourced product headed by an attorney who can't even pass the state bar examination is your model MMC? What about the local companies that grew out of a need to compassionately serve patients? What about the small caregiver who provided medicine to patients at 50% of the price charged by RiverRock who has been but out of business because their business model is not cost effective serving only 5 patients?

According to many members of the MMED Advisory Group Albarez strongly influenced the rule making process. Many members felt that they were ignored throughout the process and that Albarez was given Carte Blanche to draft the rules.

When members of the advisory committee raised concerns regarding Albarez's proposals and the costs associated with them Albarez commented, "If they can't afford it then they shouldn't be in the business."

Why has no one investigated this further? Why does Westword, Denver Post or any other media outlet not explore some of the facts behind the man and the company destroying Colorado's MMJ movement? Are we all so apathetic as to just allow one or two individuals to control our destiny and steal from us what is rightfully ours, a plant with fantastic healing powers and a business model built on helping those in pain?

WTF?

FINALLY! The dangers of edibles have been evident since the inception of the MMJ business. You damn hippies all want to be back in college in Vermont or boulder eating your damn pot brownies.

Oh you have back pain? Well F*CK YOU! HA, there I said it, F*CK YOU right in your aching back. Go buy a damn percocet if you hurt so bad. Eli Lily is really struggling this year and you have gone and F*CKED UP there financials by trying something that won't destroy your kidneys. HOW DARE YOU!!!!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Boycott MMCs: Grow Your Own
Boycott MMCs: Grow Your Own

The problem with stopping this 1250 is that the proponents will claim they aren't telling people they cannot manufacture their own edibles, just that cannabis food products cannot be manufactured and sold. This isn't stopping anyone from making their own medicated food at home.

Frankly, between the solvents, kitchen cleanliness issues (I have heard dire horror stories from several workers and inspectors in several different organizations) and the corporate consolidation issue (Simply Pure wants to be the "Starbucks" of edibles? "Heinz" BBQ sauce is fine target, with its HFCS and other preservatives? etc etc) I think the ban actually might not be a terrible idea.

People can and should make their own edibles at home without having to beware of dirty kitchens, solvent toxicity or corporate clowns. I really seem to be a bit on the fence about this entire issue, at least until some type of standards for cleanliness, quality and efficacy can be proven and we don't have a small group of ultra- greedy shitheads trying to turn natural, plant-based medicine into just another financial bubble.

Don't buy from Josh Stanley or The Releaf Center or Simply Pure or any other fucking dispensary -- grow your own, or if that is impossible, locate a small, private caregiver to provide your meds. It's the only way to avoid the clowns, criminals and corporate c**ts.

NO BUTANE
NO BUTANE

I completely agree with Sailorjerry, this bill is a distraction.

I DO HAVE ONE THING TO SAY THOUGH *getting on my soap box*...

The only reason a bill like this is favorable in my eyes is to stop the dispensaries and edible companies out there are carrying products like Cheeba Chews or Bakked that use BUTANE FUEL extractions. BHO is one term, stands for Butane Honey (or Hash) Oil. Butane is a flammable fuel acts as a solvent by dissolving the THC and other cannabinoids present in the plant and drawing it out as a amber colored liquid. Not only is this environmentally damaging from the disposal of toxic chemical waste, but poses a toxicity problem to humans.

So why do dispensaries and some edible companies use it?

BECAUSE IT'S CHEAP!! Because they know uneducated patients don't realize part of the intense "high" they get off these cheap products is partially from the solvent and other impurities in the Isobutane/N-Butane. Sniffing or consuming solvents can dissolve the cell membrane and damage cells, especially to the brain -- it has also been strongly linked to heart muscle sensitization; it basically can make the heart super sensitive to adrenaline and can lead to sudden cardiac arrest and death, even if you have previously used it without adverse effects.

DISPENSARIES AND EDIBLE COMPANIES THAT USE CHEMICAL SOLVENTS FOR THEIR EXTRACTIONS ARE ENDANGERING PATIENTS!! Affirmative Defense does not protect you when you engage in conduct that endangers others.

PRODUCTS TO STAY AWAY FROM:Butane Honey OilButane Hash OilEar WaxAmber GlassMarble HashHoney BudsHoney Hash Oils...anything with HONEY in the name is probably a safe bet to avoid.

Those who produce such products will claim that that they use uber-refined butane, but it doesn't matter. The solvent bonds with the organic matter. Besides, the waste from the cans used for wholesale production is INSANE!!!! Wholesalers of Butane Extracts buy pallets of butane!

For this reason alone, I would support taking away infused products. But I hope the if the legislation gains any ground that instead it makes any chemical solvent extractions illegal.

Bill

Yeah, don't worry, everything will be OK. Matt Cook and the DEA will take care of you.

You've put your finger on the problem: we have very little political cohesion. Our enemies have taken our measure, and they know us better than we know them. The cannabis community in Colorado has too myopic a political view; we want to believe that most people already agree with us and that the rest will shortly. The national drug policy reform groups are inadequately informed by events here, by political opportunities peculiar to Colorado, and by the polarization of opinion within the community. I think that any number of us agree that working for a constitutional amendment ending Prohibition is our best hope. I believe that we may already have the savvy we need; what we need is money. I would like to canvass Colorado for cannabis in conjunction with a sustained campaign in mass media -- anyone have a few millions of dollars to spare? Because medical cannabis has been the target of a smear campaign in the Denver Post and the general media disdain for cannabis, we have a tremendous unmet need to communicate with and educate the general public; we need to bring voters who do not use cannabis and disregard it as a political issue to our side if we expect to win in 2012.

Are you boycotting all doctors? They charge for their services. How about boycotting Macy's and the Gap. We all need clothes, how dare they charge for them! How about boycotting Whole foods Market? How dare they charge for good food that is free of presevatives!

I am sick of the this stupid, "give it away and let's all smoke for free" attitude. How many of your patients get their medicine for free from Walgreen pharmacy? I support smart people that bring good, safe, businesses to the public. So I support Josh Stanley, Simply Pure, The Releaf Center and whoever else you hate. They are obviously doing something right if idoits like you are boycotting them!

Ha ha you sound like someone that lives in Nederlands... Old school hippie with way too much time on your hands.

I'm a very busy small business owner with chronic back pain and I don't have time to grow some plants or make some food.

I'm happy to pay for a quality edible, but most people making them have no education in food. Huh??? That's preposterous! Imagine me giving you tax advice, if I have little to no experience.

Personally, I feel this is ALL the dispensary owners fault. They're so desperate to make a buck that they will carry anything that sells....... even if it has chemicals in it.

A lot of these dispenseries need to be shut down. I had no clue about the lighter fuel extractions... Why not offer meth? It's a chemical too and will get you high. What's the difference?

You are not real bright. People with jobs, kids and a life don't have the time to grow our own, or bake our own. I am so thankful for companies like Simply Pure. No preservatives, 100% organic, vegan AND gluten free. It helps with pain form my chemo and is good for me.

Why wouldn't normal people, with jobs, want to have something that is prepared by real chefs? I know Lauren Gennett, one of the chefs at Simply Pure she is an amazing chef from Boulder and has worked for many people in our community, including Congressman Jared Polis. I don't think it gets any better than that.

I actually just tried Simply Pure after I learned they don't put any preservatives in, and I am Vegan with a gluten intolerance (pain in my ass, everything gluten-free if you can find any tastes like crap). There's no way I could make edibles that taste as amazing as them.I also like the beverage company Marquaha, for similar reasons. I don't think they're all bad, but I STRONGLY AGREE edibles need VERY STRICT RULES THAT ARE VERIFIED BY INSPECTORS!

Great, Bobpot, you are a lawyer and you should have no problems getting on a DEA webcam to buy your medicine. You're doing nothing wrong, right? Tell that to the US Attorney! The DEA is crawling all over Colorado busting people for what's supposed to legal in Colorado.

Without our fascist drug laws the price of even good cannabis would drop precipitously. I've never heard "give it away and let's all smoke for free", but I don't sell overpriced cannabis. If you do not support ending Prohibition, you are not supporting patients. No patient should spend a penny in dispensaries that supported SB109 & HB1284 or which advertises in the Denver Post (including Cannabis Station, Rocky Mountain High, and Sweetleaf Compassion Center). Which dispensary do you own?

I don't own a dispensary, I am a patient and a lawyer. Did you see the Montana MMJ laws have been repealed? You should be thankful that the very people you want to boycott are the reason that Colorado lawmakers have to keep MMJ legal for patients. Mark Grueskin was smart enough to ensure it was written in the Colorado Constitution.

The working public, those with jobs, are going to insist that businesses operate with regulations. The better businesses are those with owners who understand business. I am sorry that you can’t get your head around that simply fact. You hippy types don't own the marijuana movement. There are many reason to see MMJ legalized and one of those reasons is business revenues. Sorry this is upsetting to you. MMJ is now mainstream and you will either get on board, learn to operate a professional business or be a ridiculous artifact in the growth of the MMJ industry. There is nothing you can do to stop it. So, if you are advertising in the Denver Post and you have made money by offering safe and effective medicine, I will pay more for it. As an attorney, I feel safer in places not run by some guy who has never had a job or a bath.
