Colorado's Marijuana Enforcement Division is holding a meeting with public input at the State Capitol Building today from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m (and continuing tomorrow, if necessary) to discuss proposed rule changes to the state's retail and medical marijuana regulations. Submit your comments to [email protected] or use the MED’s written comment form by September 1. Get more information about the proposed rule changes by clicking here
