GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) -- Marijuana may be legal in Colorado, but regulation of the drug is just beginning.

A 24-member task force appointed to set up pot rules meets Monday for the first time.

Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper appointed people from law enforcement, marijuana advocacy groups and even agriculture to write regulations for marijuana. They'll be coming up with rules for how to keep marijuana from children and how to make sure the drug is produced safely and doesn't end up in neighboring states that don't allow the drug.

Another topic for the task force will be deciding whether to allow Amsterdam-style marijuana clubs.

The task force has until February to send suggestions to the governor. The Department of Revenue must adopt the regulations by July, with sales possible by year's end.

    Utah and Arizona is looking better and better all the maybe Wyoming. I will wait until the stoners come here from Kali and all the blue states then sell high and I already bought low. I will promote border fences around Colorado and keep the nuts in here.
