Changes to the appearance of marijuana edibles to make them identifiable to children will be taken up by Colorado regulators with a bill signed into law Wednesday.
Colorado prisons would have the power to revoke inmates' earned time for any reason, or if they have committed a violent crime while incarcerated, with a bill given initial approval Thursday in the House.
Minutes after President Barack Obama announced he supported gay marriage, the Democratic governor of Colorado choked back tears in Denver as he ordered state lawmakers to reconsider a civil-unions measure that Republicans had defeated the day before.
Even with President Obama "evolving" his way to support of gay marriage, the politics of the issue are playing out in the states, with potentially large consequences for the vote in November.
Chants of "Shame on you" from gay rights supporters thundered through the Colorado House on Tuesday night after Republican House Speaker Frank McNulty said legislation to allow civil unions would not get a vote.
"It is absolutely reckless to use children's snacks, spray marijuana on them and then sell them," he said. "They will end up in the hands of kids, and we've seen the effects that they have had in the hands of kids."
McNulty said the goal is to change how edibles are manufactured to make sure parents, doctors and children at playgrounds can tell when candy is infused with pot.
