Industry group says Colorado’s cannabis industry is falling behind

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Colorado led the charge towards the legalization of marijuana for decades, and was among the first to legalize the drug for medical and recreational use. However, an industry group says that the state is falling behind.
Cannabis legalization advocates blame a law that went into effect last year that caused a steep drop of more than 15 thousand medical users. The law made it harder for people under 21 to get a medical card, and restricts how much marijuana patients can buy. A debate over altering the law is slated to for the state senate Thursday afternoon.
Medical marijuana advocacy group Americans For Safe Access said, “Colorado legislators and Governor Polis presided over the single worst rollback of medical cannabis” it has ever witnessed.
