Colorado Senate Judiciary Committee votes down bill to allow marijuana delivery

DENVER -- A bill that would have allowed marijuana delivery in Colorado was voted down in the State Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday.

The bill, which would have allowed a pilot program, passed the House in recent weeks.

The program would have allowed three cities in Colorado to hand out up to 15 delivery licenses to dispensaries and companies.

Supporters argued the bill would have helped sick Coloradans who require THC treatment.

Although the bill had bipartisan support,  several groups came out against the measure, including Smart Colorado and the Colorado Chiefs of Police.

Update: An earlier version of this article listed the Colorado Muncipal Leaguge as opposing this bill based off the Colorado Secretary of State Lobbyist monitoring Website. The Colorado Municipal League has clarified they were neutral on the bill.

Five states -- including California, Nevada and Oregon -- offer cannabis deliveries, while Colorado does not.
