Colorado Task Force Shares Findings And Recommendations For Regulating Intoxicating Hemp Products

State Alert

This week, the Colorado Task Force formed to study and provide recommendations for regulating intoxicating hemp products submitted its final report to the General Assembly. As previously reported, the establishment of the task force was a compromise made following negotiations between hemp and marijuana industry stakeholders to improve upon SB 22-205.

While we have yet to dive into the details of the report, we would like to applaud the task force for its diligent efforts to better understand intoxicating hemp products and provide Colorado legislators with thorough feedback and direction regarding regulation. We commend the careful consideration and comprehensive approach led by Governor Jared Polis’ administration, and congratulate all task force members for their hard work over the last several months. We would also like to recognize and thank U.S. Hemp Roundtable Board Member and General Counsel for Balanced Health Botanicals, John Harloe, for his dedicated service to the task force.

Of course, the devil is in the details, and our experts will be reviewing the report in the coming days. In the meantime, we want to hear from Colorado Hemp Supporters and industry stakeholders! Please share with us your thoughts regarding the task force findings and recommendations for regulating intoxicating hemp products.
