Colorado leads charge to test, regulate marijuana
Colorado is working toward becoming the first state to regulate production of medical marijuana. Regulators say pot consumers deserve to know what they’re smoking, and producers should have safety regulations such as pesticide limits for plants destined for human consumption…Colorado hopes to have in place by early next year some sort of labeling and inspection standard for marijuana sold commercially, under provisions of a new state law. But it’s a daunting task. Physicians, pot shop owners and state regulators all say standards are needed but guidelines don’t exist.
