Colorado: Legislation to Protect Marijuana Laws From Federal Interference “Postponed Indefinitely"

Update: Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee on May 1 decided to “postponed indefinitely” further action on HB 17, likely killing it for this year.

Update: Members of the House voted 56 to 7 on April 26 in favor of the bill. It now awaits action from the Senate.

Legislation is pending to prohibit public employees from assisting federal agents in “arresting a Colorado citizen for committing an act that is a Colorado constitutional right.” Such acts would include the production and sale of marijuana.

The majority of Colorado voters desire a legally regulated marijuana market. Passage of this act will limit state or local agencies from working with the federal government to undermine these regulations. 

Senate lawmakers are also debating separate legislation, SB 192, to protect marijuana retailers from federal interference.
