A measure allowing Colorado marijuana stores to open on-site "tasting rooms" where customers can sample their wares has passed the Legislature and is bound for Gov. John Hickenlooper's desk.

It's all "for the purposes of consumer education," the measure says.

House Bill 1258 is "one of the first of its kind in the nation - if not the first," though a few other states with legal pot sales are considering it, reports Marijuana Business Daily.

As the HB 1258 summary says: "The bill authorizes each licensed medical marijuana center or retail marijuana store to establish one retail marijuana accessory consumption establishment . that may sell marijuana, marijuana concentrate, and marijuana-infused products for consumption, other than smoking, at the establishment."

Customers could consume cannabis-infused products and concentrates purchased from the retailer in a tasting room but would not be allowed to smoke.

The House approved the final version of HB 1258 on a 40-25 vote after the Senate approved it 22-12.

Sponsors were Reps. Jonathan Singer and Jovan Melton and Sens. Tim Neville and Stephen Fenberg.
