JUNE 7, 2010 - COLORADO INCREASES OVERSIGHT OF MEDICAL MARIJUANA DISPENSARIES
Colorado’s medical marijuana law is amended by House Bill 1284 and Senate Bill 109 .
Colorado Governor Bill Ritter signed the bills into law and stated the following in a June 7, 2010 press release:
“House Bill 1284 provides a regulatory framework for dispensaries, including giving local communities the ability to ban or place sensible and much-needed controls on the operation, location and ownership of these establishments.
Senate Bill 109 will help prevent fraud and abuse, ensuring that physicians who authorize medical marijuana for their patients actually perform a physical exam, do not have a DEA flag on their medical license and do not have a financial relationship with a dispensary.”
