Denver (AP) A rulemaking hearing on proposed changes to the state medical marijuana registry program is being postponed, likely until June.
The State Board of Health hearing was scheduled for March 18, but health officials said yesterday that the board is now seeking a larger venue because of significant public interest in the issue.
Colorado law says patients under a doctor's care who get a medical marijuana card can legally possess small amounts of the drug. As of the end of January, 5,051 patients had valid cards.
Proposed changes to the registry program include limiting primary caregivers to five marijuana patients and requiring notarized signatures on applications.
The public can submit written comments to the board until May 15.
