Senator Neville returned to Senate Judiciary to take action on HB 18-1092, concerning a pilot program for marijuana delivery, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation. The bill was originally heard in committee on April 11.
Senator Coram distributed two amendments: L.008 (Attachment A) and L.016 (Attachment B). He explained that Amendment L.008 changes the location of the bill in the statutes. L.016 regards age limits for medical marijuana and also addresses delivery issues specific to veterans.
The committee raised questions about the amendment's broad application to veterans and recreational marijuana delivery.
Michael Dohr, Office of Legislative Legal Services, clarified that Amendment L.016 limits the delivery of recreational marijuana to veterans and allows medical marijuana delivery to 18 to 20 year olds only with parental consent.
Senator Neville made closing remarks.
