A new Colorado state law requiring magazines focused on marijuana to be treated like pornography is unconstitutional, according to the state’s Attorney General John Suthers (R). The law provides that “magazine[s] whose primary focus is marijuana or marijuana businesses” must be kept behind the counter in most stores.

The immediate impact of this decision is that, instead of promulgating a regulation enforcing the new law, the state’s rule instead reads that “[n]o magazine whose primary focus is marijuana or marijuana businesses is required to be sold only in retail marijuana stores or behind the counter in establishments where persons under twenty-one years of age are present, because such a requirement would violate the United States Constitution, the Colorado Constitution, and section 24-4-103(4)(a.5)(IV), C.R.S.”
