Colorado Medical Marijuana: State Supreme Court Rejects Challenge To Regulations

The Colorado Supreme Court has rejected a marijuana dispensary owner's challenge to Colorado's regulations on medical marijuana.

Last week, a Denver Lawyer named Andrew Reid filed a petition on behalf of Kathleen Chippi, a marijuana dispensary owner from Nederland, claiming that the regulation passed by the state Legislature last year violated the state's constitution.

The petition argued that the regulations violate marijuana patients' constitutional right to privacy be requiring that their purchases be videotaped.

"Apparently, the Supreme Court does not think that it is a matter of great urgency that sick and dying people in Colorado are being denied their constitutional rights of safe and confidential access to medicine," Chippi told the Colorado Springs Independent on Tuesday.

The plaintiff will now file their case in a lower court.
