Marijuana magazines to be treated like porn, and other oddities of main pot bill

Warren Edson.
Amendment 64 proponents "said to regulate marijuana like alcohol," he notes, "but apparently, our legislature wants to regulate it like porn.

"How many beer brewing and distilling magazines are in the racks at the Tattered Cover -- yet they're going to make these magazines go behind the counter? Really?" In his view, this move "could be devastating for both the industry as a whole and consumers in terms of cutting back on information and ways to see new products -- because a lot of people aren't going to want the icky feeling of having to go into a 7-Eleven and ask, 'Can I see the magazine behind the brown paper bag?'"

Another noteworthy but little discussed passage pertains to THC limits in marijuana edibles. One portion calls for "a serving size for edible retail marijuana products that does not contain more than ten milligrams of active THC, label requirements regarding servings for edible retail marijuana products, and limitations on the total amount of active THC in a package that is no more than one-hundred milligrams of active THC."

Edibles with well over 100 milligrams of THC are widely available at many if not most medical marijuana centers in the state. Does this mean companies would be prohibited from going beyond this number for any product? Or will they be able to manufacture them for sale to people with red cards, but not to recreational customers. That isn't clear to Edson.

"It amazes me that there hasn't been more discussion about this cap," he says. "That's pretty low."

Here's the House-approved draft of the bill.

House Bill 13-1317: Revised April 29, 2013

More from our Politics archive: "Marijuana retailers may not have to grow their own -- and that's great, attorney says."

One thing we can all agree upon: the wisest interlocutor is always the first to post a sodomy analogy.

Get REGULATED, bitches !! ... you VOTED FOR IT !!

Colorado lawmakers introduce third measure on Stoned Driving

The new bill, House Bill 1325, landed on a day when the Colorado legislature was already stretched thin by marijuana. At the same time a House committee was hearing HB 1325, a Senate committee was taking public testimony on the regulations bill — House Bill 1317 — and yet another House committee was hearing testimony on a separate, less-contentious bill on rules for recreational marijuana.

The bill sets a limit of active THC — the psychoactive chemical in marijuana — that drivers can have in their blood before juries could presume them to be stoned

Nothing like a quiet night, home alone w/ the latest edition of 'High Times' .

It gives me a boner like reading the '911 Commission Report' or the Bible, just w/o all the photos and advertisements !

OR watching Hotay & stuka argue ....

Do they put alcohol behind the counter and shield its packaging as well? Thought not. Just another example of government trying to ignore the will of the people. I think it's about time we had a civil war, and kick these assfucks out of our country. Tired of talking. Tired of being at the mercy of a government that has no concern for me or mine. Tired of paying for people to ruin the lives of Americans with my tax dollars. Tired of peoples children being taken away for a plant. Tired of needless incarceration. The politicians that stand between Americans and their freedom need to be hanged by the neck until dead. Period.

Boobs and buds are bad. Feed the kids violence all day, and tell them getting high and having sex is dangerous.  Then we can keep blaming guns for everything.

No, and Eric --- Perhaps the restrictions should be on the packaging and cover graphics... not on placement?

"Wine Enthusiast" and "Micro Beer Today" should be hidden behind the counter also! This discussion and media hysteria (including "Westword") sensationalizing this issue is just ludicrous after awhile.

@Matt_in_Boulder ""the memo" sent by A64 was that ignorant fucktards like you SURRENDERED TOTAL CONTROL of Marijuana over to Prohibitionists Politicians, the Insatiable Dept. of Revenue and the same Law Enforcement Goons who've been running the Drug War against you ...

... all for a PATHETIC OUNCE!

The VOTERS who supported A64 DESERVE this FRAMEWORK they BEGGED FOR rammed up their ass!

@Creedence 

Booooooooo yaaaaaaaaah!

The prohibitionist unethical incompetent lying Marijuana McLawyers who wrote that piece of shit A64 now stand to reap HUGE $$$ from "fixing" the clusterfuck disaster they created.

Talk about unethical CONFLICT OF INTEREST.

Makes as much sense as PAYING the ARSONIST huge $$ to rebuild the Homes and Businesses THEY BURNED to the ground.


Hey gullible bong-sucking stoners -- if you still have any doubt that Vicente - Sederberg are PRO-LAW ENFORCEMENT anti-marijuana SHILLS ... just blow out what little brains you have left.

The Pot Clown Circle-Jerk is now complete -- DEA agent MMED thug Matt Cook has left the Government for private marijuana consulting, and McShysters Vicente and Sederberg are now working for GOVERNMENT REGULATORS!

Bück Dich, suckers ... this Fist is going in DEEP!

@stuka1 ... Stupid Stoners and the Lying Self-serving McLawyers who wrote A64 were too fucking incompetent to include any Scientifically Objective DUI-m Standards when they declared and enshrined into the Constitution that DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF MARIJUANA SHALL REMAIN ILLEGAL.

Clueless Bong-Sucking Retards are as Clueless Bong-Sucking Retards do !!

@Creedence ... b-b-but the Wasteword headline said it was "Legalization" ... and no competent reporter ever called out Lyin' Brian Vicente and Mendacious Mason Tvert on their pathetic prevarications and flagrant frauds.
