Colorado Officials Still Working on How to Regulate Marijuana

Initiative passed in November calls for marijuana to be regulated like cigarettes and alcohol


DENVER—Marijuana should be regulated like alcohol, according to Colorado voters. But state officials are just starting work on how to do that.

Two smaller groups of a state marijuana task force pot are meeting Thursday. One is looking at consumer safety and how to label pot. The other is considering whether pot should be treated like alcohol or like medical marijuana.
