Colorado Wellness Association--Medical Marijuana Trade Group--Announced

Colorado medical marijuana providers formed the Colorado Wellness Association Wednesday, a trade group that its founders hope will help regulate the industry. The group's creator, marijuana attorney Rob Corry, told 9news that he hopes the organization will "create some labeling requirements; some quality control. This is going to be a self-regulating group. We're going to police our own industry and we're going to hope to police it well so the government doesn't come in and do it for us,"

The group's founders told the Denver Post that the Colorado Wellness Association will "produce a regular magazine and perhaps even start an online medical-marijuana commodities market for dispensary owners to purchase their product."
