Laws becoming stricter for Colorado medical marijuana growers, buyers, sellers and patients

According to Denver CBS Channel 4, beginning July 1st, medical marijuana caregivers are required to register with the state and let the authorities know exactly where they are growing the plants.  This means that even those who are growing the marijuana for medical reasons for less than 5 patients will have to let the state authorities know their grow sites and which strands of marijuana they are growing. Now the smaller growers are going through similar regulations as the bigger dispensaries.

Many Colorado marijuana growers have been growing in the area for years—it is important they recognize all of the rules and regulations that have been changed. It’s even important for their patients to understanding what their providers should be doing to abide by the rules. If caregivers, dispensaries or patients fall to abide by the laws in place, it might mean fines or other prosecution set by the Colorado state government.

It is recommended that all Colorado MMJ patients and employees of medical marijuana businesses consult a medical marijuana attorney before they continue to use, grow or sell marijuana after the July 1st laws are set in place. It is vital to make sure their privacy rights as well as their amendment rights are kept even with the new laws being enforced. Those who become aware of their rights are less likely to fall into the trap of being prosecuted as a criminal. If one Colorado marijuana dispensary is caught providing the medical marijuana without a state issued license, anyone involved could be prosecuted.

With the new Colorado medical marijuana laws comes the rise in situations in which medical marijuana employees are being asked to submit an unreasonable amount of personal and financial information.  However, with this increase in giving of information, the state has not necessarily increased the number of licenses handed out. Therefore, employees are giving way too much information, only to work at an unlicensed business—in which they could potentially be caught and persecuted for failing to comply with the strict medical marijuana laws.

It is important to realize what role the state plays in enforcing the laws on medical marijuana selling, buying and usage. Those involved should be up to date with all laws because the Colorado authorities are enforcing them. The medical marijuana buyers, sellers and users in Colorado have to take additional steps to see the legalization of marijuana continue to rise. Unfortunately, as of July 1st, many of the previous rights and conditions for marijuana dispensaries have been taken away.
