A measure to study changes to how marijuana edibles should look to prevent accidental ingestions by children is getting signed into law in Colorado.
Gov. John Hickenlooper is also signing a bill Wednesday that would eventually limit marijuana in its concentrated form. The governor is signing both bills during a ceremony at Children's Hospital in Aurora.
The proposal on edibles calls for a study by state regulators to look at what rules on edibles should be in place, and possible changes to dosing. The study is supposed to yield recommendations by November.
The other bill is aimed at setting possession limits for concentrated forms of marijuana such as hash oil. In its concentrated form, an ounce of pot has far more servings than the same amount in plant form.
