Concerning the development of marijuana tracking technology.


https://leg.colorado.gov/bills/sb18-029

SESSION: 2018 Regular Session
SUBJECTS: Crimes, Corrections, & Enforcement Higher Education Liquor, Tobacco, & Marijuana

The bill requires the institute of cannabis research at Colorado state university – Pueblo (institute) to develop marijuana tracking technology (technology). The technology must include an agent that is applied to a marijuana plant, marijuana product, industrial hemp, or industrial hemp product and then scanned by a device. The scan, at a minimum, would indicate whether the marijuana or hemp was cultivated, manufactured, or sold by a licensed marijuana business or registered hemp cultivator. The institute shall select a vendor to develop the technology. After the technology is developed, the state licensing authority must be satisfied that the technology provides an effective means of tracking marijuana. After the state licensing authority determines the technology is an effective means of tracking marijuana, it shall promulgate rules that require the technology to be used by licensed marijuana businesses, and the commissioner of the department of agriculture shall promulgate rules that require registered industrial hemp cultivators to use the technology. The technology that scans the marijuana must be made available to law enforcement and the department of revenue.

The bill clarifies that the gray and black market marijuana enforcement grant program could award grants to law enforcement agencies to purchase the marijuana scanning technology.

    Why does cannabis have to be treated like weapons grade plutonium?
    It’s the safest thing on earth.
    Is tobacco treated this way?

    its all about money guys…make sure the government sucks every dollar they can from this weed they so hate so much. The government seems sooo fkn pissed that the public wanted this legal, that they decided to at least profit at any cost as much as they can from this natural plant. its sickens me and i cant believe people go and vote!!! We have the power to change this but we have to do together.

    What a joke! We gotta wake up to this government who only sees us as mice turning a wheel to supply them with whatever they need. You modern day morons read stuff like that and immediately assume this is far from the truth bc your reliable source of fox, cnn, nbc…etc has told you otherwise. Until we all wake the fuck up, shit like this will continue to happen and it will only get worse. We might all have barcodes soon
