Colorado Legislature Introduces Marijuana Delivery Bill

The Colorado Legislature introduced a bill on the Delivery of Regulated Marijuana. The bill directs the state licensing agency to adopt regulations allowing medical and adult use retail stores and transporters to apply for a delivery license. The bill requires the state to begin permitting medical marijuana delivery licenses by January 2, 2020, and permitting retail marijuana licenses by January 2, 2021. Businesses holding multiple licenses must apply for a separate delivery license for each license held. A $1 dollar charge would be added to each delivery to cover the cost of increased law enforcement needs. The bill prohibits the delivery of medical or adult use marijuana in any municipality or jurisdiction that prohibit certain marijuana establishments including retail stores. The House Business Affairs & Labor will be holding a public hearing on this bill on March 27, 2019 at 1:30 pm.
