Colorado Bill Would Restrict Distribution of “Magazines Whose Primary Focus is Marijuana or Marijuana Businesses”

The bill, HB1317, provides that an agency must set rules

Requiring that magazines whose primary focus is marijuana or marijuana businesses are only sold in retail marijuana stores or behind the counter in establishments where persons under twenty-one years of age are present.

Uh, no, you can’t do that. That the government may regulate marijuana doesn’t mean that it may regulate magazines that are about marijuana or marijuana businesses. Thanks to the Media Law Resource Center MediaLawDaily.
