Colo. Senate approves new medical marijuana regulations

(And yet they still fail to recognize that this is a PLANT we are talking about)


DENVER - The Colorado state legislature has moved a step closer to cracking down on the seemingly unabated distribution of medical marijuana.

The full senate voted 34-1 on Monday to approve a bill that would bar doctors from writing medical marijuana recommendations inside dispensaries. It also requires that doctors have a relationship with a patient involving a review of medical history and a full medical exam, prior to writing a recommendation.

Those between 18 and 21 would have to get the backing of two doctors before becoming medical marijuana users.

Sponsored by Sens. Chris Romer, D-Denver, and Nancy Spence, R-Centennial, Senate Bill 109 aims to create new rules related to standards for issuing registry identification cards, documentation for physicians who prescribe medical marijuana, and sanctions for physicians who violate the bill.

"The days of the Wild West are over," Romer said during a well-attended public hearing at the State Capitol last week.

Attorney General John Suthers and Ned Colange, Colorado's Chief Medical Examiner, testified in support of the bill.

Representing hundreds of medical marijuana users, attorney Robert Corry called the bill "an unprecedented assault on the doctor-patient privilege" that would, Corry said, "hold medical marijuana doctors to a higher standard than any other doctor.

"This would cause human suffering. The most sick and most poor would be disproportionately harmed by this bill," Corry said. "You're going to see the BME conducting witch hunts against medical marijuana providers."
