Pot purchasing limits proposed in CO

By  | 

Marijuana consumers in Colorado could be in store for purchasing limits well below what's they're allowed to have.

A state task force set up to regulate recreational weed in Colorado agreed Monday to recommend marijuana purchasing caps. Adults over 21 in Colorado are allowed to have up to an ounce of weed, but the task force recommended that a single transaction at a pot shop should be capped at a lower amount.

Regulators did not agree what the smaller cap should be, punting that decision to the state Legislature, which will ultimately decide all of Colorado's marijuana rules.

The task force is made up of lawmakers, law enforcement and marijuana advocates. The task force also agreed to labeling requirements to include potency.
