Marijuana training proposal faces CO House test

A marijuana proposal aimed at training people who work in medical marijuana businesses faces a test in Colorado’s Republican House.

A House committee known for rejecting Democratic proposals planned Wednesday to consider a “responsible medical marijuana vendor” designation.

The optional designation would allow pot shops to train employees in state marijuana regulation and how to spot fake marijuana cards. In exchange, the businesses could get a break if they run afoul of state regulations. A similar designation already exists for the alcohol industry.

The marijuana industry backed the measure. It passed the Senate last month.
