Pot and public safety topic of Colorado chiefs meeting

LONE TREE, Colo. - Colorado's police chiefs are gathering to talk about legal weed, everything from pot and highway safety to the dangers of home hash production.

The chiefs will begin the three-day closed-door conference in Lone Tree on Wednesday to lay out what they've learned after two years of legal marijuana. They will get an update from the U.S. Attorney in Colorado, John Walsh, as well as Colorado's top officer from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency.

The chiefs also will get updates on stoned-driving convictions in the first two years of legalization, along with pointers on how officers can tell legal pot grows from illegal ones.

Finally, they will hear from people in the marijuana industry, who will talk about safety concerns in an industry operating mostly on cash.
