Some regulations on potency could be hitting Colorado

Soon after Colorado made it available for teens to bring medicinal marijuana into schools, they’re cracking down on anyone looking to abuse the privilege.

A bill was introduced last Friday into the State house that would severely limit the abilities of 18-20 year olds looking to buy medicinal marijuana. It hasn’t passed through yet, but seems it likely will.

In particular, they would not be able to purchase any more than 2 grams of THC concentrate, down from 40 grams, and makes it difficult to visit multiple dispensaries in the same day.

Getting a medical card will also be harder. For those between the ages of 18 and 20, it’ll require two doctors to sign off, and will hold much more information, including:

  • The date of issue and the effective date of the recommendation;
  • The patient’s name and address;
  • The recommending physician’s name, address, and federal drug enforcement agency number;
  • The THC potency level of medical marijuana being recommended;
  • The dosage form;
  • The daily authorized quantity;
  • Directions for use; and
  • The recommending physician’s signature.

Any advertising that targets this age group will also be prohibited. In almost every way, this can be considered a crackdown on what has until now looked like a laissez-faire approach to high potency concentrates being sold to younger people.
