Colorado bill to register marijuana caregivers passes committee
A state Senate committee on Thursday unanimously approved a bill that would require medical marijuana caregivers to register and allows state agencies to share enough information to ensure pot grown for medicine isn`t sold illegally.
While pot sold for recreational use has been subject to a battery of tests and regulations since it became legal last year, medical marijuana has gone relatively unregulated, requiring only that caregivers be at least 18 years old and have ``significant responsibility`` for the care of a licensed medical marijuana user.

Stripped-down Colorado MMJ bill gets prelim OK in Senate

Delusional D.C. group suing to stop legal marijuana, protect white kids
Since black and Latino young men are at least four times more likely to be arrested for marijuana than white kids, one can only assume that the kids this group is trying to protect by suing Colorado and others involved in the legalization of marijuana are white kids who use marijuana but just dont get arrested nearly as much for it.

Heres what Safe Streets says about a suit it plans to f....
