Officials in Colorado were unable this week to agree on rules to regulate edible marijuana products, The Denver Post reports. The working group charged with drafting the rules decided to submit ideas for new regulations to the legislature.
A law sponsored by State Representative Jonathan Singer requires the Department of Revenue, which oversees the state’s marijuana businesses, to draft rules to limit the accidental ingestion of marijuana-infused edibles sold in recreational marijuana stores. The rules must be in place by 2016. “I wanted to know the difference between a marijuana cookie and a Chips Ahoy! cookie just by looking at it,” said Singer, who was part of the working group.
