DENVER (AP) - Colorado’s top prosecutors and police officials say the state’s regulation of marijuana seems “to change on a daily basis” and are calling for a two-year moratorium on new pot laws to give officers time to catch up.

The Denver Post reports (http://dpo.st/23MAs7x ) that the law enforcement officials sent a letter to lawmakers last week, saying local police can’t keep up with the high volume of constantly changing marijuana laws. They say the moratorium on changes to laws regarding pot legalization would help slow the process down.

The law enforcement officials have also asked legislators to fund two work groups to monitor the impacts of legalization and to train officers. They also requested a state marijuana liaison to law enforcement.
