Colorado House Bill 1358 Fails In Senate, THC DUI Not Dead Yet?
Beth McCann’s proposal to shift millions in medical marijuana patient registry fees from the Colorado Department of Health and Environment to the Medical Marijuana Enforcement Division, failed to pass through the State Senate
The bill would have earmarked about $7.7 million to help finance MMED inspections and licensing of medical marijuana dispensaries. An additional two million would have gone to youth violence and drug programs. And another section of the bill would have also moved about $93,000 from the CDPHE to the Department of Public Safety to help fund an existing program that allows law enforcement to access the medical marijuana patient registry.
Earlier this week, we reported that attorney Rob Corry has threatened a lawsuit in relation to the bill, asking for a refund of the nearly $10 million in leftover patient registry information. He points to language in Amendment 20, which legalized medical marijuana use in the state, as being clear about how patient money can be used.
