Colorado pushing for pot-labeled foods

A group of Colorado lawmakers is trying make labeling for pot-based foods and drinks more clear.
Most marijuana munchies in Colorado contain about 100 milligrams of THC.

That's the ingredient that makes you high, but the intensity of that high isn't always the same.

Now, Democrats and Republicans are working on a system to test products on a regular basis.

They want people who eat the treats, to be able to look at a label and figure out just how stoned they'll get.
"When you mix the ingredients together, you're not necessarily going to get the same amount of flour, and sugar and eggs and THC in every corner of that."

The weed industry is welcoming the possible label change.
Officials say they hope to use a similar labeling system used for alcohol percentages listed on beer containers.
