Marijuana Magazines Scrutinized In Colorado

DENVER -- Marijuana magazines are under scrutiny in Colorado, where lawmakers might require stores to put them behind the counter.
The unusual provision to treat pot magazines like pornography was considered Thursday in a Senate committee. If approved, the provision would make Colorado the first state to require stores that allow entry to shoppers under age 21 to place pot magazines behind the counter.
"It's analogous to the pornography example," said Rep. Bob Gardner, R-Colorado Springs and sponsor of the magazine amendment.
The magazine restriction faced long odds in the Legislature, though. Gardner's magazine limitation was added in a late-night amendment last week and was expected to be removed by Democratic sponsors. Gardner conceded Thursday that he wouldn't be surprised if his magazine idea fails to make the final marijuana regulation bill.
A lawyer for High Times magazine called the magazine restriction "patently unconstitutional" and said there's no legal precedent for treating pictures of a drug as obscene. Lawyer David Holland said the magazine would likely sue if the provision becomes law.
"It is a content-based restriction that violates freedom of speech," Holland said.

Raided pot dispensary hopes to reopen
Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Fri, May, 3rd 2013 by THCFinder
SAN DIEGO — Federal agents raided the One on One marijuana dispensary in downtown San Diego last week, but the owner he wants to reopen as soon as possible.
“That’s what my heart tells me to do,” said Ken Cole, owner of One on One.
But Cole said the risks are still too high and he wants to wait on city government to vote on a new medical marijuana ordinance currently being drafted.
It would allow dispensaries to operate and be regulated within the city, but many are questioning whether an ordinance could offer any protection from US Drug Enforcement agents to dispensaries given the conflict between state and federal law.
“I thought we were being robbed,” said Mike Klein who was working at the dispensary when the Feds broke through the glass entrance to conduct their search warrant.
“Honestly they kind of looked like terrorists since they were wearing masks,” said Klein.
Federal agents ripped out every security camera and raided the place claiming it was operating illegally under federal law, which unlike California, does not approve or recognize the use of marijuana for medical purposes.
“Does a criminal organization register with the Secretary of State, pay sales tax, pay employee salaries?” said John Murphy, an attorney representing the dispensary.
