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.
