Marijuana challenge turned away by Colo. court

DENVER — Colorado’s Supreme Court won’t hear a sweeping challenge to the state’s new medical marijuana laws.

The court has turned down a request by some marijuana advocates to hear arguments on whether parts of those laws violate the constitutional amendment that made medical marijuana legal.

The patients say the pending rules violate patient privacy because of a requirement that pot shops record marijuana sales on video. The patients also argue that the laws wrongly give local cities and counties the ability to ban marijuana dispensaries.

The Supreme Court’s decision Monday not to hear the challenge doesn’t mean the court has ruled on whether the marijuana laws are constitutional. Plaintiffs say they’ll now file another lawsuit in a lower court.
