A Lingering Legalization Debate In Colorado In An End-of-session Frenzy, Hb 1367 Was Amended To Tack On Cannabis Pesticides Research And Testing Provisions Contained In An Unrelated Bill That Died In Committee Days Before.

A lingering legalization debate in Colorado In an end-of-session frenzy, HB 1367 was amended to tack on cannabis pesticides research and testing provisions contained in an unrelated bill that died in committee days before.
