No Food Stamps For Weed Brownies!

Food stamps and other forms of public assistance payments should not be used for purchasing pot brownies, lawmakers say. A group of legislators from the last side of the aisle introduced Senate Bill 37 that would ban such purchases, putting marijuana dispensaries on the same list as liquor stores, gun shops and casinos, where the use of electronic benefit cards is currently banned.

The Colorado's marijuana industry supports the bill and has stressed that there are no reports of food stamps being used in marijuana shops. A hearing for this bill has yet to be set.
