DENVER (AP) – It’s the zombie initiative of the Colorado Legislature: A proposal to create a blood test for drivers who are marijuana users came back to life for a fifth time as a House committee set about regulating the drug on Wednesday.
The House vote to reconsider standards for impaired driving came just two days after a Senate committee decisively killed a marijuana driving bill on a 4-1 vote. Similar measures have failed three other times.
The House committee also agreed to rules on how recreational pot should be sold, including purchasing limits for people from out of state. Non-residents would be limited to one-fourth of an ounce in a single transaction – enough for about six to 12 joints, depending on how they’re made. Colorado residents and visitors alike could possess up to an ounce of marijuana, as long as they’re over 21.
