Medical Marijuana Get Court Review

DENVER—Medical marijuana rules are headed to a Denver judge.
Denver District Court Judge Larry Naves has scheduled a hearing Tuesday morning on state regulations limiting who can supply the drug to patients.
The state board of health temporarily narrowed the definition last week. But medical marijuana supporters are asking Naves to block those limits from taking effect, saying the state didn't give enough notice of the vote.
The question is about the definition of "caregiver" and who can supply marijuana to people who medically qualify to use the drug. It's unclear how long it will take Naves to decide whether to block the new rule.
The state health board is planning to make its final decision on Dec. 16.

Excellent!

It is the job of the courts to decide our laws and interpret the constitution of our state.

NOT THE STATE HEALTH BOARD.

Someday I imagine we will all live in a land were men and women alike are free to do what they choose to do with their own bodies. A world were one really does have right to pursue happiness as they see fit. Even if it is sitting at home smoking from a glass pipe.
