DENVER - The committee jokingly referred to as the "joint joint committee" will hold its first meeting on Friday at 1:30 p.m. at the Colorado capitol.
It might better be referred to as the "marijuana supercommittee," because the 10-member panel will make a lot of decisions quickly about what the future of legal pot will look like in Colorado.
The formal name for the group of lawmakers from both chambers is the "Joint Select Committee on the Implementation of the Amendment 64 Task Force Recommendations."
The task force, assembled by Gov. John Hickenlooper, will release its final report on Wednesday.
Committee chairman Dan Pabon (D-Denver) confirms to 9NEWS that the first committee meeting will be devoted to voting on which task force recommendations will make it into an omnibus marijuana bill to overhaul the state's laws.
The bill will then be drafted based upon Friday's vote and is expected to cover everything from regulating the sale of pot to adjusting criminal statutes to comply with Amendment 64.
