Organizers announced the formation of the Colorado Wellness Association Wednesday morning at Full Spectrum Laboratories in Denver.
The group says it wants to give the state's medical marijuana community a unified voice while working with local businesses, law enforcement and the general public to regulate medical marijuana.
"We hope to 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," Robert Corry, Jr., with the Colorado Wellness Association, said.
The Colorado Wellness Association says it plans to outline a standard of ethical business practices for caregivers as well as establish a standard of care that patients can expect from their providers.
