The Colorado Sun reports
A 19-year-old medical marijuana patient has filed a lawsuit seeking to block a new Colorado law limiting how much marijuana concentrate medical cannabis patients can buy, alleging the measure violates the state constitution.
House Bill 1317, which passed the legislature with unanimous support from the state Senate and with the objections of only eight of 65 lawmakers in the state House, was signed by Gov. Jared Polis on June 24. It’s aimed at curbing illegal teen use and adult overconsumption of high-potency THC products, with lawmakers citing concerns from parents about the impacts of high-potency cannabis concentrates on young people who reported mental health issues, anxiety and psychosis after use.
The measure limits how much concentrated cannabis medical marijuana patients can buy each day, and allows the state to track purchases to enforce that limit. The law also requires certain concentrate products, called dabs or shatter, to be packaged in single doses.
Finally, the measure mandated that patients who are 18 to 20 years old must have the signatures of two doctors from separate practices before they can get a medical marijuana card.
