Marijuana task force in Colorado finishes work

DENVER – Exhaustive suggestions for how marijuana should be grown, sold and taxed are finally in the hands of the elected officials who will decide how to regulate the newly legal drug.

A task force made up of pot advocates, law enforcement and government regulators released its report Wednesday. The task force looked at everything from labeling standards to recommendations for keeping the drug away from children.

The task force report is just a series of suggestions. The final marijuana regulations will be made by state lawmakers, who have created a special marijuana committee to look at nothing but pot regulation.

Marijuana remains illegal under federal law. The U.S. Department of Justice has not said whether it will sue to block Colorado’s law.
