DENVER — A measure to broaden a ban on certain types of edible marijuana to include products that mimic other foods or candies is up for a vote in the Colorado Legislature.

A House committee is considering the proposal Thursday. It comes amid concerns that children can accidentally ingest some kinds of marijuana edibles. However, some marijuana activists fear the bill could ban any type of edible pot.

The bill would direct the state Department of Revenue to adopt rules requiring that marijuana edibles be clearly marked or designed to show that they contain pot.
