Marijuana Dispensaries To Display Warnings To Pregnant Women

Lawmakers will continue to debate a proposal that would require retail pot shops and medical marijuana dispensaries to post a warning to pregnant women about the potential risks of marijuana.

The bill is in its third and final reading in the the state House before it heads to the Senate.

An earlier version of the bill was rejected amid disagreement over how to describe the risk marijuana poses to unborn and nursing children. The version approved Monday directs state health authorities to come up with warnings. The exact language of the signs hasn’t been determined.

The bill had bipartisan support but some opposition. Some wondered whether the requirement would violate the voters’ direction to regulate marijuana like alcohol. Although liquor products must include warnings for pregnant women, liquor stores aren’t required to post warnings in Colorado.
