Pot-shop warnings for pregnant women clears Colorado hurdle


House Bill 1298: http://bit.ly/19BA4U3

DENVER — A bill to require Colorado’s marijuana dispensaries to post warnings for pregnant and nursing women is advancing in the state Legislature.

The House gave preliminary approval Monday to a bill requiring state health authorities to come up with warning signs. The exact language of the signs hasn’t been determined.

The bill has sparked some opposition by lawmakers from both parties who point out that liquor stores don’t have to post similar warnings. But supporters call the requirement an important piece of educations for a new product.

Recreational pot sold in Colorado already comes with warnings for pregnant women. But label warnings aren’t required for medical marijuana products.

One more House vote is required before the bill heads to the Senate.
