The Bill still Needs senate Approval And The Governor’s Signature To Become Law.

Denver, for instance, has a 12-plant limit. The bill still needs Senate approval and the governor’s signature to become law. Also on Monday, colorado marijuana the House gave preliminary approval to a companion measure, House Bill 1221 , which would create a $6 million-a-year grant program to help local law enforcement crack down on illegal grows. It will be paid for using unspent money in the state’s marijuana cash fund, which is funded by marijuana sales taxes. The two measures come amid growing uncertainty over how the Trump administration  will handle states like Colorado that have legalized a drug that the federal government still considers an illegal, Schedule 1 narcotic. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is an outspoken critic of legalizing marijuana , and Sean Spicer, a spokesman for the White House, has said to expect “greater enforcement” of federal marijuana laws under President Donald Trump. But it’s not yet clear what that will mean. The hope among Colorado officials is that any efforts the state takes on its own to limit the spread of marijuana will help stave off any unwanted federal intervention.
