Obama Visit Draws Attention From Colorado Medical Marijuana Industry

Staff CMM - Friday, June 01, 2012

During President Obama’s recent visit to Colorado, medical marijuana advocates turned out to voice their concerns regarding the federal government’s recent activities in shutting down many of Colorado’s medical marijuana businesses in Boulder, Colorado. The businesses were warned by U.S. Attorney John Walsh that they were within the 1,000 foot limit of schools and were ordered to move or be shut down. Many of the businesses shut down after the warning and supporters of medical marijuana in Colorado believe this effort by the government has had a detrimental effect on Colorado’s economy, potentially costing the state over1,000 jobs just as the state is struggling to recover from a recession. Advocates for medical marijuana in Colorado are asking the President to commit to protecting these jobs just as he would protect the jobs of any other industry, citing that medical marijuana is a legitimate business and should receive the same treatment as other businesses in the state.
