DENVER (AP) – A marijuana proposal aimed at training people who work in medical marijuana businesses has cleared the Colorado Senate.
The Senate voted 24-11 Wednesday in favor of a “responsible medical marijuana vendor” designation.
The optional designation would allow pot shops to train employees in state marijuana regulation and how to spot fake marijuana cards.
In exchange, the businesses could get a break if they run afoul of state regulations. A similar designation already exists for the alcohol industry.
The marijuana industry backed the measure. It now heads to the House.
