Her part-time caretaker stumbled upon some of my grandfather's old rifles and it scared her. She called the police. Grandma had medical cannabis in the house to treat her ailments and now she is facing serious charges over it.
But... But... But I thought cannabis was legal here in Colorado?
It is, and it has been a godsend for my grandma's XYZ ailment. These contradictory laws are so dang hard to navigate! I just don't know what to do to help her!
You have the right to remain silent....
I'm eighty years old! I'm not a criminal! Those are my husband's... I have a med card! Please, someone help me.!
Meanwhile, as this legal contradiction claims more victims....
Concurrently possessing firearms and cannabis isn't inherently dangerous and the laws restricting them lack clear purpose. These contradictory laws puts thousands of Coloradans at risk for persecution and may put undue stress onto some of our largest and growing economies.
