The "Moron Identification Law"

My brother, who lives in Texas, and has always been VERY pro-gun-control, told me that there's one issue on which he agrees with the NRA: open-carry laws. He calls them the "Moron Identification Law". He says, "so if I walk into a restaurant, and I see a moron, I can turn around and leave. It's a hell of a lot better than concealed carry."

Boulder's homeless mourn a friend, the latest in series of sad losses

Four people went to sleep under the eaves of a building at Scott Carpenter Park during the spring snowstorm that struck Boulder on the night before Mother's Day. Only three woke up.

The woman discovered by her friends to have died while they slept was identified two days later as Kathryn J. Fishman, 59.

Apparently homeless for a significant period of time, she had been a frequent visitor in recent weeks to the Scott Carpenter Park area, and was well known for pushing around not one shopping cart but two.

According to the Boulder County Coroner's Office, she left behind a daughter, who lives in the state. The cause and manner of Fishman's death has not yet been determined, nor have those of the previous three transients to die.

The kitchen of Brian and Meghan Wilson's rental home in Denver's Washington Park neighborhood looked like a chemistry lab. Using beakers, glass dishes and a botanical extractor, the couple coaxed oil from dispensary-bought marijuana plants, desperate to control the epileptic seizures of their 3-year-old daughter, Vivian.

Before giving it to the little girl, who likes to draw on an easel and play with her toothbrush, the Wilsons took their homemade oil to a Denver marijuana testing lab to make sure the dosage was correct.

All of that stopped after state regulators began informing marijuana testing labs that as a condition of holding a state license to test, they may only accept samples from licensed recreational pot shops, infused-product manufacturers and medical marijuana dispensaries.

I don't understand. If they're trying to regulate every ounce of pot in the state, why not allow individuals to have their pot tested? It seems to me that that would HELP them regulate it.
