CO Won't Enforce Marijuana Magazine Restrictions

Because, First Amendment, of course


Colorado regulators will not enforce — at least initially — a new law requiring marijuana-themed magazines to be kept behind the counter at stores that sell them.

In an emergency rule issued Wednesday, regulators with the state Marijuana Enforcement Division concluded the law is unconstitutional.

"[S]uch a requirement would violate the United States Constitution, the Colorado Constitution" and state law, the rule states.

The state attorney general's office signed off on the emergency rule.
