DENVER (AP) -- Two bills to implement new restrictions on marijuana edibles and pot in its concentrated form are up for a vote in the Colorado Senate.

One proposal would broaden a ban on certain types of edibles to include products that mimic other foods or candies. Lawmakers are trying to prevent accidental ingestions.

Another bill would set possession limits for concentrated forms of marijuana such as hash oil. Currently, Colorado adults can possess up to an ounce of marijuana without regard to whether it's leafy flowers or concentrated oils. In its concentrated form, an ounce of pot has far more servings than the same amount in plant form.

Both bills get their first vote in a Senate committee Thursday afternoon. The measures have already cleared the House.
