State And Federal Offices Clashing On Colorado Medical Marijuana Law

Staff CMM - Tuesday, April 24, 2012
Conflicts between state and federal offices have been spurred on by the recent distribution of letters from the U.S. Attorney’s office to medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado demanding that all dispensaries closer than 1,000 feet of school properties must be closed within 45 days or face prosecution. Boulder District Attorney Stan Garnett has sent the U.S. District Attorney John Walsh a letter this month urging him to back away from enforcement issues against Colorado medical marijuana dispensaries, although the specific reasoning for the letter was not disclosed. Walsh responded by stating that enforcing federal laws to protect children from drug abuse is a core responsibility for his office and will remain so, as enforcing federal laws against selling marijuana near schools is a legitimate use of his office’s resources.  Although Colorado law allows limited usage of marijuana for various medical reasons, marijuana is still considered an illegal drug under federal laws.
