Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper signed two bills into law Monday designed to keep children safe from marijuana. One requires child safety packaging the other allows store owners to confiscate fake I-D's people are trying to buy recreational pot. Eli Stokols has the story. Now, it';s a law. A few things you'd have thought lawmakers would've included in last year's package of recreational marijuana regulations. "Keeping marijuana out of the hands of kids should be a priority for all of us," says Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper. Closing loopholes, the bill signed Tuesday protect young children from accidental ingestion, something E-R doctors are seeing more of. "We've had some severe cases where children have been unable to breathe adequately and have needed breathing tubes," says Dr. Sam Wang of Your Family Children's Hospital. The new law requires legal pot to be sold in Opaque, child-resistant packaging. "Child-resistant packaging is standard for things like Tylenol because it works," says Gov. Hickenlooper. The law also affects older children trying to buy pot by giving pot shop owners the same rights as liquor store owners, to confiscate fake I-D's. "Marijuana should not be easily accessible or appealing to kids," says Gov. Hickenlooper. The new law also defines rules for legal home grows, making sure children can't access the plants. Evidence, the bill sponsor says, that all of Colorado is committed to keeping legal marijnaua away from kids. "We had the marijuana industry, we had the medical profession, law enforcement, Republicans, Democrats all come together to say how can we fix these problems?" says Democratic Rep. Danile Kagan of Denver.
