Fifteen bills directly related to marijuana and hemp were introduced during the Colorado legislative session this year. Proposals pushing commercial pot delivery and social pot use areas both passed after years of denial, while bills expanding medical marijuana qualifications sailed through the legislature. Two separate, massive measures that both extended and updated the state’s medical and retail marijuana codes also passed, which promise more changes ahead.
All told, thirteen of the fifteen bills were approved by the Colorado General Assembly in 2019. Although only two have been signed by Governor Jared Polis so far, there’s no indication yet that he might veto any, as John Hickenlooper did last year.
Here’s a quick rundown on each proposal (including the legislature’s official language), and how it fared with lawmakers.
