Colorado Governor Wants to Cracks Down on Medical Marijuana

Colorado’s governor is setting new regulations for the state’s medical marijuana program.

Gov. John Hickenlooper was scheduled on Monday to sign Senate Bill 14, which would direct state health authorities to set new guidelines for doctors recommending medical cannabis for severe pain, reports the AP.

Pain is currently the most common condition found on Colorado’s medical marijuana registry.

Medical marijuana caregivers will also be directed to inform patients that products may not be tested for potency or contaminants under the bill’s speech.

SB 14 will update medical marijuana regulations that were put into effect well before Colorado legalized recreational marijuana use for adults in 2012.
