Pot growing question stumps Colorado

DENVER – Colorado marijuana regulators can’t decide whether future pot sellers should be required to grow most of the weed they sell.

A task force set up to consider regulating Colorado’s new legal marijuana law was divided on the question Tuesday. Task force members couldn’t agree whether future pot shops should look like liquor stores, which don’t produce the booze they sell. Colorado’s existing medical marijuana industry requires sellers to grow the majority of their product, a requirement aimed at preventing pot from ending up on the black market.

The so-called “integration” question is a big one for Colorado’s marijuana regulators because it will determine how pot is grown and sold. The task force Tuesday put off the question but still plans to make a decision by the end of the month.
