Colorado Legislature Reveals Laws for Recreational Marijuana Retail
Colorado has taken another step in the previously unexplored territory of marijuana legalization. We now have regulations for anyone who wants to buy pot, medicinal or not.
Retail sales of marijuana won't be legal in the state until January, but the deadline for regulation was July 1st.
Here are some highlights from the new law book, as printed by the Coloradoan:
• No single package of an edible marijuana product can contain more than 100 milligrams of active THC, no matter how many servings it contains.
• Colorado residents can buy up to an ounce of marijuana at a time. Out-of-state residents can buy up to a quarter-ounce.
• Labels on marijuana-laced snacks have to list their ingredients and carry warnings including “The intoxicating effects of this product may be delayed by two or more hours.”

That's really only the tip of the 60-page iceberg of legislation released today.
