(CBS Seattle/AP) — Marijuana magazines could be treated the same as pornography in Colorado, if lawmakers approve new legislation.

The provision would require stores to put pot magazines behind the counter. It was added to a marijuana regulation measure last week when the House debated it.

According to High Times magazine, the provision would make Colorado the only state to treat pot magazines like porn. A lawyer for the magazine says it would consider suing if the provision is signed into law.
