The nation's most generous grow-your-own marijuana laws came closer Monday to being curbed in Colorado, where the state House advanced a pair of bills aimed at cracking down on people who grow weed outside the commercial, taxed system. House Bill 17-1220 would set a statewide limit of 16 marijuana plants per house, down from a current limit of 99 plants before registering with state health authorities.

The Colorado state Senate approved a bill Thursday that would make it legal to share completed ballots on social media. The bi-partisan House Bill 17-1014, sponsored by Reps. Paul Rosenthal, D-Denver, Dave Williams, R-Colorado Springs, and Sens. Kerry Donovan, D-Vail, and Owen Hill, R-Colorado Springs, would change a law that was put on hold last year after a bipartisan group sued over the selfie ban, saying the measure inhibited political speech.

Four-term Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman has done everything imaginable to shore up support in a battleground district in the suburbs east of Denver. He keeps up a tireless campaign schedule and has raised far more than any congressional candidate in Colorado, from either party. Coffman learned Spanish after his Aurora-based district was redrawn in a way that includes more Latinos. He's even learned a few basics in Amharic, the language of Ethiopian refugees in his district. Still, he can't get away from Donald Trump.

Wondering if that brownie contains pot? Colorado has you covered. A requirement that edible marijuana products come with a diamond-shaped stamp and the letters T-H-C — not just on the packaging but on the brownies, candies and other edibles themselves — takes effect Saturday. The rule referencing marijuana's psychoactive ingredient was added after complaints that the treats look too much their non-intoxicating counterparts. It is the first such requirement in any legal weed state.

Marijuana pioneer Colorado is poised to add post-traumatic stress disorder to its medical marijuana program, joining 18 other states that consider PTSD a condition treatable by pot. A panel of state lawmakers voted 5-0 Wednesday to endorse the addition of PTSD to Colorado's 2000 medical pot law. The vote doesn't have immediate legal effect; it's just a recommendation to the full Legislature, which resumes work in January. But the vote indicates a dramatic shift for a state that has allowed medical pot for more than a decade but hasn't endorsed its use for PTSD.
