DENVER (AP) -- Colorado now has a set of laws to regulate and tax recreational marijuana.

Gov. John Hickenlooper signed six pot bills into law Tuesday. The laws cover how marijuana should be grown, packaged and sold.

Another new law sends to voters the question of taxing pot at least 25 percent, with proceeds going to school construction and the cost of regulating pot.

Hickenlooper also signed a bill creating a new driving limit for marijuana as an analogy to the blood alcohol limit.

The governor said he believes the federal government will soon respond to the fact that Colorado and Washington state are in violation of federal drug law. But Hickenlooper didn't have a specific idea when.
