Troubled pot regulation review continues in Colo.

DENVER (AP) - Colorado's troubled medical marijuana regulation agency is up for a second day of scrutiny Wednesday in the Colorado Legislature.

Legislative auditors released a blistering 89-page report Tuesday calling the Medical Marijuana Enforcement Division a distressed, directionless agency. The report faulted regulators for setting ambitious micro-tracking goals for the drug and running out of money to implement seed-to-sale accountability.

The report also criticized the agency for not collecting all possible sales taxes and for sometimes granting licenses to people who shouldn't have gotten them.

The agency is under intense scrutiny because the agency will likely regulate recreational marijuana, with sales to begin next year. Agency heads are appearing before lawmakers to talk more about how they'll improve marijuana regulation.
