DENVER (AP) -- Marijuana potency in Colorado won't be limited -- but consumers should know how strong pot is before they buy it.

That's the recommendation Monday from a task force suggesting regulations on pot. Voters in Colorado decided last year to allow recreational pot, and Colorado is now figuring out how to regulate it.

Regulators say marijuana potency can't be capped. Instead, they recommended potency labels that include the relative amount of THC, the psychoactive ingredient in pot.

Colorado lawmakers will ultimately decide the state's marijuana regulations. The task force is also debating consumer safety regulations including pesticide limits and how to label edible marijuana to prevent accidental overdoses.
