In addition, Hickenlooper also signed an Executive Order to create a task force on the implementation of Amendment 64, that will provide recommendations to the legislature on how best to establish a legal market for businesses to grow and sell marijuana to legal adults. All meetings of the Task Force will be open to the public, it will be holding its first meeting at noon, Dec. 17, in the Department of Revenue Gaming Conference Room, 17301 W.
