Two state marijuana hearings today
The Colorado State Board of Health will host two public hearings today regarding medical marijuana rules.
One proposed change would require a patient’s designated caregiver to do more than just provide a patient with marijuana, but to also provide other care-related services to that patient.
Other rules being considered today relate to driving under the influence of marijuana, how often a patient can change caregivers, and the use of medical marijuana by people who have previously been convicted of or pleaded guilty to drug related offenses.
Caregivers will be allowed to testify beginning at 9 am and patients will be allowed to testify beginning at noon. The hearing will be held at The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Sabin Conference Room, 4300 Cherry Creek Drive South, in Denver.
The proposed rule changes would not affect dispensaries.
