CSU warns master gardeners not to advise marijuana growers - The Denver Post

CSU warns master gardeners not to advise marijuana growers - The Denver Post

FORT COLLINS — Colorado State University employees certified as master gardeners are being warned by university attorneys not to give advice to anyone about growing medical marijuana because the drug remains illegal under federal laws.

CSU spokesman Brad Bohlander said prospective medical marijuana growers have contacted several of the gardeners, who work at offices in almost every county in the state. The offices are meant as a link between academia and Colorado's agricultural community.

Colorado voters approved marijuana use for medical purposes in 2000. But CSU attorneys say that because federal law makes the drug illegal, employees will assume "personal liability" if they are charged with helping marijuana growers. The Associated Press
