Colorado Supreme Court may hear medical marijuana case
October 11, 2011
Denver — The Colorado Supreme Court soon may take up a debate that could alter fundamentally Colorado's medical marijuana landscape.
The question: Does the Colorado Constitution, amended by voters in 2000 to include a medical-marijuana provision, give people a right to cannabis?
The Colorado Court of Appeals this summer said no, in a case involving a man fired from his job for legal medical marijuana use. That man, Jason Beinor, has now asked the state Supreme Court to review his case.
What the court decides will have broad-reaching implications for medical marijuana law.
