New Laws Take Effect In Colorado July 1

DENVER (CBS4)- On Friday, July 1, several new laws took effect in Colorado.

One is aimed at protecting tow truck drivers. It honors a Colorado Springs man, Allen Rose, who was dragged to death while preparing to tow a car.

Tow truck drivers are now required to place a warning sticker on the driver’s side window. If you pass a car being towed, you must move over one lane.

Another law requires medical marijuana caregivers to register with the state and inform authorities where they’re growing the plants.

Other laws effective Friday include restrictions on how much state-chartered entities can spend on travel and a ban on chemicals used to produce synthetic marijuana, often called Spice or K2.

The tax exemption for famers on agriculture products such as pesticides and animal medicine was part of this session’s state budget deal. Eliminating a tax on software downloaded online was also part of the compromise.

    So this new law was in response to some wacko taking off so she didn’t get towed. The tow truck driver got caught up in the tow cables and dragged to his death…

    So now, we’re required to move over one lane….to where?
    So what happens when there’s only two lanes to each side?
    Does that mean you can’t pass the tow truck.?
    Hey CBS, when you report, how about providing enough information about the law without having the reader go and look it up…
    Once again, you told me nothing….

    It is the prohibition of marijuana which has made this niche for legal weed alternatives. A niche which herbal incense products are filling rather successfully. The bans against k2 smoke products are not solving anything. Many places exist where one may still buy k2 incense and seemingly vendors like, claim that the k2 herb products they sell are legal everywhere.
