Bill would ban Colorado pot dispensaries from paying docs
DENVER – The fight over medical marijuana is about to officially begin at the state Capitol.
Sen. Chris Romer introduced a bill Wednesday that would bar dispensaries from paying doctors to clear people to become medical marijuana consumers.
The measure (Senate Bill 109) would require that doctors give patients a physical exam and review a person’s medical history before recommending that they be added to the state’s list of approved medical marijuana users.
Lawmakers have been talking for months about how to regulate the state’s booming medical marijuana industry, but this is the first bill to be introduced.
In the House, Rep. Tom Massey is also working on a bill that could limit the number of people marijuana providers are allowed to supply.
