Colorado’s marijuana hearings wrap up

GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) – Marijuana advocates aren’t done having their say about proposed regulations to govern how pot is sold in Colorado.

A two-day hearing concludes Friday for public comment on the nation’s most sweeping marijuana regulations. Many have complained that the drug surveillance proposed by the Department of Revenue violates patient privacy.

However, state regulators say taping of marijuana transactions is necessary to prevent marijuana from ending up on the black market.

After the hearing concludes, the rules may be approved by an official at the Department of Revenue without further debate by state lawmakers.
