Colorado’s state marijuana rules up for public hearing

GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) – Rules on how medical marijuana is grown and sold are up for two days of public debate in Colorado.

The Colorado Department of Revenue opens a two-day hearing Thursday to consider 99 pages of rules about how medical marijuana is grown and commercially sold. The proposed rules govern seed-to-sale control of the drug, require purchases to be taped and set up state licensing for commercial pot sales.

The rules would also govern how to produce and sell edible marijuana products, along with the nation’s first regulations on the safe production of hashish.

After the two-day hearing, the Department of Revenue can make the rules final.
