STATE BILL COLORADO
Several news organizations have coverage on the introduction of HB11-1043.
The Denver Post: Colorado’s medical-marijuana laws could be relaxed to make it easier for felons to own dispensaries and exempt long-standing pot shops from buffer rules around schools. A bill unveiled this week at the state Capitol makes a number of changes to Colorado’s medical- marijuana laws that are friendly to the cannabis industry.
Colorado Springs Independent: When the Department of Revenue’s Matt Cook recently spoke to a room full of Colorado county commissioners for the group’s winter conference session, he promised that a clean-up bill was on its way from the upcoming legislature. Well, ladies and gentlemen, you already know House Bill 1284 — meet House Bill 1043. Co-sponsored by Rep. Tom Massey and Sen. Pat Steadman, the bill seeks to make a number of adjustments to previously passed legislation.
Westword: This week, the department of health’s medical marijuana advisory committee struck draft language that would have doomed mobile MMJ clinics — but it left intact limits against doctors with conditions or restrictions on their licenses. However, HB 1043, a new bill on view below, could change the game again.
