Medical Marijuana A Crime When On Probation

Staff CMM - Saturday, April 14, 2012

According to the Colorado Court of Appeals, the use of medical marijuana by a patient who is on probation for another crime is considered a violation of probation. Although Colorado State law allows users of medical marijuana in Colorado to use the drug for various medical ailments, medical marijuana is still considered a crime according to federal law and the state constitution cannot exempt patients on probation from complying with federal law. Any person caught with any amount of marijuana in their system, regardless of whether it is for medical use or not, can and will still be considered in violation of their probation. Medical marijuana patients in Colorado would be wise to curb any usage if they find themselves on probation in order to prevent further prosecution by the law. Unless and until medical marijuana is accepted by federal law as legal, medical marijuana users will have to exercise caution.  Use of any controlled substance – however miniscule, can still lead to impairment, according to law officials who are working to keep drivers safe on the road, and penalties will still apply.
