This Week in the Colorado Legislature

As summarized by 9News, a number of legislative decisions are looming on the regulation of marijuana, including a decision by the Joint Budget Committee on how to spend the marijuana tax revenue. Also up for vote by lawmakers are bills on the regulation of marijuana edibles and concentrates.

“Designer drugs” are typically defined as synthetic drugs, often mimicking the effect of illicit drugs, that try to skirt existing drug laws. A bill clarifying enforcement responsibilities is pending in the Senate after passing in the Colorado House of Representatives.

Up for a final vote in the House is a bill that would make parolees subject to immediate warrantless arrest if they tamper with or remove their electronic monitoring devices. The bill in question is a legislative response to the killing of DOC Executive Director Tom Clements last year, after a parolee allegedly murdered him several days after slipping out of his electronic monitor.
