Colorado justices approve medical marijuana during probation
DENVER — The Colorado Supreme Court has ruled people may use medical marijuana while serving probation.
KMGH-TV reports the state’s highest court issued the ruling Monday.
Records say the case stemmed from a lower court decision to prevent a woman who pleaded guilty to DUI from using medical marijuana during her 12 months of unsupervised probation.
The woman held a valid medical marijuana card.
A county court blocked her use because a medical professional did not testify about her need for it.
The Supreme Court ruling says the language of the medical marijuana statute creates a presumption the drug can be used while on probation.
