DENVER -Marijuana tourism is on the way to Colorado, but the state will put up signs in airports and borders telling visitors they can't take pot home. That was a recommendation made Tuesday by a pot task force set up to suggest regulations for the drug made legal by voters by year.
The task force formally recommended the following Tuesday:
- Allowing non-residents of Colorado to purchase marijuana in shops, but limiting the quantity that non-residents can purchase in a transaction
- Allowing only Colorado residents to apply for a license to open a marijuana store
- NOT selling marijuana through state-run stores (like the way Utah sells liquor)
- Easing state tax filing for marijuana businesses
- Relaxing criminal laws against people under the age of 21 for first marijuana offenses
The state Legislature will ultimately vote on the task force's recommendations.
