As for many of the other fine points that were considered — including such arcane hypotheticals as whether sucking on a cannabis lollypop could be considered consuming marijuana in public, even though no one but the consumer would know — Jackson conceded during the break that “we’re never going to deal with every contingency.”

Even some marijuana advocates who attended the meeting felt some sympathy for the huge shift in perspective Amendment 64 requires of cops and prosecutors.

“I sympathize with law enforcement,” said Teri Robnett, the founder of Cannabis Patients Action Network, during public comment. “It must be hard when something is illegal one day and legal the next. It’s hard to get your head around that. It’s even hard for me to get my head around that.”
