    ”They have two months to create the rules to regulate a new industry of legalized, regulated marijuana sales in Colorado. They are members of a task force created by an executive order on December 10, when Gov. John Hickenlooper officially declared Amendment 64 law.  Their mission: establishing a regulatory framework for a new statewide marijuana industry… There are five such subgroups that will work through a list of issues, which stretches more than 100 items long, to make recommendations to the full task force… Among the many questions the task force will have to wrestle with: how to track marijuana so that it doesn’t get diverted to the black market, whether to limit THC content in marijuana, impose requirements on growing standards, labeling and advertising, whether to implement restrictions to keep marijuana out of the hands of minors, and whether marijuana sales should be limited to residents of Colorado.” Thomas Clarke at the Daily Chronic
