A law promoting more pot consumption has been sent to Gov. John Hickenlooper for his signature. Meanwhile, a study by Colorado physicians finds marijuana dispensaries urging women to use the drug while pregnant.

If Colorado has not hit bottom with the reckless commercialization of a recreational drug, we dread to contemplate what is next.

A study by doctors at Denver Health and the University of Colorado School of Medicine posed researchers as pregnant women.

The women called 400 Colorado pot dispensaries. Each claimed she was eight months pregnant and suffering morning sickness nausea.

As reported by The Gazette on Mother’s Day, a whopping 83 percent of “medical” dispensaries advised the women to go ahead and use the drug. Half of the 83 percent were in metropolitan Colorado Springs. Among recreational retail stores throughout the state, 60 percent recommended the women consume pot.

Pot packaging in Colorado tells women to avoid cannabis while pregnant.

Colorado has failed miserably to prove the merits of commercializing pot.
