Colorado legislature passes laws regulating legal pot

(CNN) – Colorado’s state legislature passed a pair of measures Wednesday regulating the sale of legal marijuana, becoming the first state to pass bills dictating how the now-legal drug will be taxed and sold in stores.

The votes come roughly six months after voters approved a constitutional amendment allowing the recreational use of marijuana in the state. Gov. John Hickenlooper signed an executive order in December to officially legalize the personal use and limited growing of marijuana for those 21 or older.
