Colo. marijuana rules face legal challenge

Filed under: Daily News | Tags:

Some medical marijuana patients want to stop Colorado’s looming regulations for how pot is sold.

A group of marijuana patients have asked the state’s Supreme Court to overturn large parts of two Colorado laws passed last year to regulate the medical marijuana industry. Many of the rules are expected to take effect later this year.

The patients’ petition argues that some of the proposed regulations, such as a requirement that pot shops record marijuana sales on video, violate patient privacy. The petition also claims that the law restricts access to medicine.

The petition filed Wednesday also argues that local jurisdictions shouldn’t have the ability to ban marijuana dispensaries.
