Medical marijuana: HB 1043 co-sponsor Pat Steadman not sure he agrees with entire bill

Last week, we shared info about HB 1043, a new medical marijuana bill co-sponsored by Representative Tom Massey, who helped shepherd Colorado's main MMJ regulatory bill through the legislature and into law.

Partnering with Massey is Senator Pat Steadman, who describes 1043 as a work in progress. He admits being uncertain that he agrees with everything in the current draft, on view below.
