Edibles in Colorado have been under attack since the cannabis-infused treats became legal to sell and consume for recreational purposes earlier this year. Today, Colorado health authorities will recommend the formation of a state commission that would have to give “pre-market approval” before any infused food or drinks can be sold to the public, according to an interdepartmental memo obtained by the Associated Press.

Colorado High School Goes on Lockdown When Student Hits Gravity Bong in Class

Student Hits Gravity Bong in Class, High School Goes on Lockdown

A Colorado high school went on lockdown Friday after a student’s gravity bong “released smoke in a classroom,” the Denver Post said.

I don’t know what’s more interesting, that one thick exhale of smoke could warrant an entire high school to go on lockdown, or that a student actually managed to sneak a gravity bong into his classroom and hit it. Did he carry it in a bucket? Did he quickly MacGyver one in a classroom sink? This story raises more questions than answers.

The recommendation was made to a group of legislators working on a Colorado House bill that will place technical and specific restrictions on the sale of edibles in the state.

Colorado Should Repeal Legalization Says Gubernatorial Cand. Beauprez

Yet another Colorado gubernatorial candidate has put his foot in his mouth about the legalization of marijuana. At least this time it’s a republican.

During a debate Thursday in Fort Collins, Colorado, between current Gov. John Hickenlooper (D)—who just last week made headlines for calling legalization “reckless”—and challenger Bob Beauprez (R), Beauprez said he thinks voters should consider repealing marijuana legalization.
