DENVER (AP) - This week’s Bill To Watch in the Colorado Legislature

THE BILL:

House Bill 1366, to broaden a ban on certain types of edible marijuana to include products that mimic other foods or candies.

WHAT IT DOES:

The bill directs the state Department of Revenue to adopt rules requiring that marijuana edibles be clearly marked or designed to show that they contain pot.

WHO WANTS IT?

The bill has bipartisan support, and is sponsored by Republican Rep. Frank McNulty and Democratic Rep. Jonathan Singer in the House. In the Senate, the bill also has bipartisan sponsorship.

HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?

The bill this year does not yet have a cost estimate.

WHERE IT STANDS:

The bill faces its first House vote Thursday in the House, Insurance and Environment Committee.

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING:

“Are these products being developed that are enticing to children, are they being developed in a way that they resemble products that are traditionally marketed toward children, and really make it more likely of accidentally ingestion because kids can’t tell the difference between a gummy bear that is bought from King Soopers and a gummy bear that has been purchased from a retail marijuana shop. That’s the challenge that we have in front of us.” - McNulty
