Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning the development of marijuana education materials, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation.

Committee on Cost-benefit Analysis of Legalized Marijuana in Colorado.

The bill directs the department of education (department):


  • By July 1, 2017, to create and maintain a resource bank, to be known as the 'Jack Splitt Memorial Resource Bank' (resource bank), for public schools to use without charge, that consists of materials and curricula pertaining to marijuana use; and
  • Upon request of a public school, to provide technical assistance in designing age-appropriate curricula on marijuana use.

The bill authorizes the department to contract for the maintenance of the resource bank and the development of the curricula and directs the department to solicit input from persons within and outside of the marijuana industry.

After the resource bank and curricula are available, school districts, charter schools, and boards of cooperative services are encouraged to report to the department the effectiveness of them and recommendations for changes.

The bill authorizes resource bank expenses to be paid from the marijuana tax cash fund.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
