The Task Force was charged with finding practical and pragmatic solutions to the
challenges of implementing Amendment 64. The enclosed report offers up our
recommendations, most of which now need to be enacted into law by the Colorado
General Assembly or developed into administrative rules by various state departments.

We fully appreciate that these recommendations will now need to be perfected through the legislative and rulemaking processes and we offer to you the support and expertise of task force members as you need them in the weeks and months ahead.

Guiding Principles:

a. Promote the health, safety, and well-being of Colorado’s youth
b. Be responsive to consumer needs and issues
c. Propose efficient and effective regulation that is clear and reasonable, and not unduly
burdensome
g. Ensure that our streets, schools, and communities remain safe

Justification:

According to the Centers for Disease Control, approximately 80,000 deaths each year in the
United States are attributable to excessive alcohol use, making it the third leading lifestyle-
related cause of death in the nation. The co-administration of alcohol and marijuana may

significantly enhance one’s risk of death from alcohol intoxication. Because marijuana
decreases nausea and vomiting, it may inhibit the body’s natural tendency to vomit excess
alcohol during a binge-drinking episode, thereby increasing the risk of death. There is also
evidence to suggest that co-administration of alcohol and marijuana may impair driving more
than administration of either substance alone, which in turn leads to increased traffic fatalities.
By prohibiting the sale of products that combine marijuana and alcohol in a single product,
this recommendation inhibits the co-administration of marijuana and alcohol, and promotes
public health and safety.

Implementing Authorities:

Colorado General Assembly, Colorado Department of Revenue

The Task Force recommends that the General Assembly pass
appropriate legislation to prohibit the sale of products that combine
marijuana and any alcohol that requires a liquor license to be sold.
