Share.

House Bill 11-1250 was introduced on Wed., Feb. 9, 2011. This bill will
outlaw all medicinal cannabis edible products in the state, overturning the
licensing scheme for Infused Products Manufacturers that was created by the
state legislature last year.

The bill is sponsored by Rep. Cindy Acree (R-Arapahoe and Elbert Counties)
and Sen. Scott Renfroe (R-Weld County). Co-sponsors of the bill include
Reps. Balmer, Conti, Joshi, Ramirez, and Scott and Senators Harvey, King
K., and Lambert.

This bill has been assigned to the HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE. The public
hearing on the bill has been set for March 1, 2011. Get on the CTI’s Email
List to be informed of the exact date and time.

Patients depend on edible cannabis medicines as one of the most important
ways to ingest and benefit from cannabis. The therapeutic value of consumed
cannabis medicinals cannot be understated. This is another direct attack on
patient rights.

Here is the official summary of HB 1250:
“Current law permits a medical marijuana-infused products licensee to
produce edible products. The bill would prohibit medical marijuana-infused
consumable food and beverage product manufacturing and sale.”

Sample Letter to House Judiciary Committee
“I urge you vote no on House Bill 11-1250. Edible cannabis is an important
therapy for patients. It is also an important alternative to smoking
cannabis for those who have a problem with bronchial irritation. There has
been no harm shown from cannabis edibles, so there is no reason to ban it.
Please have compassion for Colorado patients who need cannabis edible
medicine to survive.”

We are urging you to CALL and EMAIL the House Judiciary Committee Members.

  1. How can they do this? thats only how some people can get their meds, not everybody can smoke, man the government pisses me off so much, they can pass a bill then a few months later take it away because somebody doesnt want it, why cant bills just stick and stay.

  2. Thanks for posting this helpful information and motivating cannabis activism!

    In the uproar, everybody overlooked what the ban would actually mean for children–the ones that the bill was allegedly written to protect. That obvious omission, plus Acree’s unnoticed conflict of interest, make this bill a pretty silly publicity stunt.

    Chuckle about it by reading this article: http://wordtender.wordpress.com/2011/03/07/how-to-be-mindful-when-a-republican-tries-to-ban-your-medicine-labeling-laws-endangered-edibles-and-your-mind/
