Colorado Lawmakers Form Colorado Cannabis Caucus
State lawmakers in Colorado have launched the Colorado Cannabis Caucus – the first of its kind for any state Legislature, according to a report from Westword. The state caucus comes more than a year after federal lawmakers from states with legal cannabis accessformed the Congressional Cannabis Caucus.
So far, only Democrats have indicated they would attend the first meeting, including Reps. Dan Pabon, Leslie Herod, Matt Gray, Chris Hansen, Jonathan Singer, and Dylan Roberts.
The meeting is organized by NORML, whose Denver-based outreach director Kevin Mahmalji indicated the organization had been looking at it “for quite some time.”
