post


In 2012, voters in Colorado and Washington made history by voting to pass initiatives that made the recreational use and sale of marijuana legal. These were huge victories for marijuana legalization advocates in these states and across the country, but whether or not the rest of the 48 states will follow Colorado and Washington’s lead remains to be seen.

Posted By:

post


Since legalizing recreational marijuana, Colorado policymakers have been focusing on some of the implications of this policy, including the potential for stoned driving.

Despite the fact that Colorado seems to have a more liberal view of marijuana use than many other states, including allowances for medical use, some Denver residents may find an increased need for a criminal defense lawyer because of the state’s laws. Because the medical use laws mean that marijuana is more readily available in some areas of Denver, some authorities pursue the criminal use of the drug more ardently… Continue reading this article

Medical Marijuana Rule Changes

Today, the Colorado Board of Health approved a series of rule changes impacting the use and also distribution of medical marijuana.  Some have criticized these changes are pro-law enforcement.  Supporters of the changes argue the changes merely “clarify” the language of Amendment 20, while opponents argue that the changes seek to undermine Amendment 20.

A bill that would have placed a “per se” limit on those driving under the influence of marijuana was killed this week in the Colorado Senate.  The bill would have placed a limit on the amount of THC one could have in their blood while driving, similar to the 0.08 limit constituting DUI Per Se in drunk driving cases.  Pro – medical marijuana lobbyists had vehemently opposed the bill, since… Continue reading this article
