SENATE COMMITTEE ON BUSINESS, LABOR, & TECHNOLOGY

Refer House Bill 16-1427 to the Committee of the W PASS







01:58 PM -- HB 16-1427



Senator Hill introduced House Bill 16-1427, concerning multi-serving liquid marijuana products. Under current law, a retail marijuana store may not sell more than one ounce of retail marijuana or its equivalent to Colorado residents and no more than a quarter ounce of retail marijuana or its equivalent to non-residents. This bill exempts multi-serving liquid retail marijuana products from the equivalency restrictions if the product complies with all statutory and rule packaging requirements for multi-serving edibles. The multi-serving liquid must:

  • be packaged in a structure that uses a single mechanism to achieve both child-resistance and accurate pouring dosing of each liquid serving in increments of 10 milligrams or less with a maximum of 100 milligrams per package; and
  • have the dosing component within the child-resistance cap or closure of the bottle and not as a separate component.



Senator Hill provided a handout to the committee (Attachment A).
