It is important that the regulations are followed to the letter or you may find yourself charged with possession of a controlled substance or distribution of a controlled substance. Additionally, you may find yourself in trouble for what law enforcement considers unlawful marijuana cultivation. Regardless of whether you are using marijuana for medicinal purposes or if you own a medical marijuana dispensary, you will benefit from discussing your situation with a skilled criminal defense attorney to ensure that you are not in violation of Colorado's strict regulations.

Laws Governing Marijuana in Colorado

Recently, Colorado passed two laws to further regulate the state's rapidly growing medical marijuana business. Under Amendment 20 doctors who in good standing are permitted to prescribe medicinal marijuana to patients to lessen the debilitating symptoms of various serious medical illnesses.

However, because of House Bill 1284 which was signed into law in 2010, the dispensaries where patients generally go to buy medicinal marijuana are under investigation and strict regulation. Now, certain cities are allowed to ban dispensaries within their borders if they so choose. Furthermore, dispensaries must grow at least 70% of their stock. If you own a dispensary and are in violation of any of these provisions, you will be shut down and may find yourself in trouble with the law.
