Lawsuit targets Denver’s new 36-plant limit for collective pot grows

 

 lawsuit filed Wednesday takes aim at a fresh Denver ordinance that could shut down dozens of unlicensed nonresidential marijuana-growing collectives by limiting them to growing 36 plants.

The Denver City Council passed the measure 11-0 Monday night. It was proposed by Mayor Michael Hancock’s marijuana office, which says it’s attempting to address unsafe conditions in the unlicensed growing facilities and an “exponential increase” in the cultivation of untracked marijuana.

Hancock signed the bill into law on Tuesday.

But the new limit — which doesn’t apply to licensed commercial grow houses — has drawn protests, in part because of the potential impact on caregivers who grow a large number of plants.

New Colorado bill scraps plans for changing look of marijuana edibles

 

DENVER — Colorado may give up on one of its toughest marijuana problems to emerge in the new market — making sure that edible pot products can’t be confused with regular foods.

A bill up for its first vote Wednesday would repeal a 2014 Colorado requirement requiring pot foods to have a distinct look when out of the packaging. The bill strikes a requirement that edible pot be “clearly identifiable … with a standard symbol indicating that it contains marijuana and is not for consumption by children.”

The sponsor of the measure, Republican Sen. Owen Hill of Colorado Springs, said he’ll suggest an amendment Wednesday to revive the requirement, but not for all foods.

Quality-Testing Legal Marijuana: Strong But Not Always Clean

Recreational marijuana has been legalized in four states, but that doesn't mean it's a tested consumer product. Some of those potent buds are covered in fungus while others contain traces of butane, according to an analysis of marijuana in Colorado.

Last May, after people began getting sick from edible marijuana products, the state of Colorado began requiring all products to be tested. Washington has mandated testing too, with a detailed checklist of items to analyze, including potency, contaminants, moisture and microbiology.

City considers extending hours for marijuana sales

A request from at least one Glenwood Springs retail marijuana shop to extend the allowed business hours for recreational pot sales in the city beyond 7 p.m. has prompted City Council to consider doing just that.

Currently, business hours for both recreational and medical marijuana sales are limited to between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m., seven days a week.

While the hours for medical sales are governed by state statute, municipalities have the flexibility to establish their own hours of operation until as late as midnight for recreational sales, which became legal in Colorado last year.

Initially, when the city wrote its regulations to allow establishments to sell both medical and retail recreational marijuana, the hours were kept the same.

Plants at six Denver grows on hold over pesticide use

The city of Denver has ordered a hold on some marijuana plants from six grow facilities after the discovery that pesticides may have been improperly used.

The Denver Fire Department noticed the violations during routine inspections and passed along concerns to the city’s Department of Environmental Health, according to city spokesman Dan Rowland.

“There (is) clear language on the labels to guide their usage, saying it’s not for indoor use, or that the product isn’t intended to be used on items grown for human consumption — like marijuana,” Rowland said.

Rowland said the hold affects only part of the grow effort at the six facilities, adding that those plants can still be maintained and harvested but can’t be marketed at this time.

IRS will refund fines to Denver pot shop that pays tax in cash

The Internal Revenue Service has backed away from a policy that penalized an unbanked marijuana business in Denver for paying taxes in cash, but the federal agency will not say if the approach applies industry-wide.

In a settlement with Denver-based Allgreens, a medical-marijuana dispensary that challenged the agency over its policy, the IRS said it would abate future penalties and will refund about $25,000 of fines the business was forced to pay despite having paid its federal employment withholding on time.
