Event organizers might be ready to move on from cannabis after 4/20, but we know you're not. Pot affairs are a little sparse compared to the overload of celebrations and rallies last week, but there's still a mix of politics, education and entertainment in this week's Cannabis Calendar.
Today at 1:30 p.m. in room 0107 of the State Capitol Building, the Colorado House Agriculture, Livestock & Natural Resources Committee will hear Senate Bill 15-014 — a bill that would tighten regulations on medical marijuana prescriptions and force cannabis caregivers to register with the state. The bill, seen as unconstitutional by some medical marijuana activists, has already passed three legislative steps.
