Mason Tvert of the Marijuana Policy Project made an appearance on a Denver political news program to discuss the Colorado legislature’s adoption of the first bills in history to establish a regulated recreational marijuana market for adults.
The three measures in question were adopted in accordance with Amendment 64, the recreational marijuana ballot initiative that was approved by voters in November 2012.
To recapitulate, two of the bills establish the framework for regulations governing the retailing of marijuana, cultivation, and product manufacturing. The third bill sanctions taxes on wholesale and retailing of marijuana, which must also be appropriated by Colorado voters.
