Only the State Government can make pot this boring. Yesterday, the Colorado Department of Revenue released its suggestions on how pot should be regulated in Colorado. The document to control legal weed is nearly 70 pages long, and includes such scintillating topics as licensing, testing, transportation and storage, business records and reporting, and enforcement, among others.
Here are some of the key rules and regs:
- Retail marijuana products must contain a series of warning statements. Some more obvious than others (e.g., “Warning: This product is infused with retail marijuana”).
- Recreational buyers must show a government-issued ID proving they are 21 years old or older.
- Coloradans can buy up to an ounce, but tourists are restricted to just a quarter of an ounce.
- State of Colorado is planning to track seeds to growers and sellers to make businesses responsible for every plant.
Local tokers can purchase weed legally starting January 1, 2014. Again, don’t get too excited, Colorado has even managed to bloat a historical event (legalizing marijuana) with regulations.
