GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – A former Carbondale medical marijuana shop owner has pleaded not guilty to charges he improperly sold marijuana and cocaine to undercover drug agents.

David Edgar, 29, of Basalt, will face a jury trial in late September, according to records at the Garfield County Courthouse.

Edgar, who ran the Mother Earth medical marijuana dispensary on Main Street in Carbondale, was arrested on Oct. 7, 2011, by agents of the Two Rivers Drug Enforcement Team and the Colorado Department of Revenue.

He is charged with selling marijuana to undercover agents without first requiring them to show their medical marijuana license, and of selling cocaine to undercover agents.

There were indications in February that Edgar’s attorney, Adam Tucker, was working on a plea bargain with the 9th Judicial District Attorney’s office. Those talks appear to have ended.

Edgar remains free on bond while awaiting trial.
