Federal judge sentences man for growing marijuana

DENVER — A federal judge has sentenced a Denver man who pleaded guilty to operating an illegal marijuana grow house to the time he has already spent in jail and reminded him that the drug remains illegal under federal law.

Hai Manh Do ran a dispensary that was closed by state medical-marijuana regulators after they determined the business wasn’t properly licensed by the state.

According to the Denver Post, U.S. District Judge Robert Blackburn said Wednesday that Colorado laws allowing marijuana dispensaries do not apply to federal law.

Do, who could have received up to 60 months in prison, pleaded guilty to one count of knowingly manufacturing, distributing and possessing marijuana. He spent three days in jail.
