2017 Law Permits Medical Marijuana Use While On Bond

A new bill signed by Governor Hickenlooper today makes it unlawful for a Colorado Judge to prohibit, as a condition of bond, the use of medical marijuana as long as the user has a valid medical marijuana registration card. The new law is not effective until 90 days past the adjournment of the date legislature (August 9, 2017) however a moral argument can be made that Judges should enforce the new law before it’s effective date.

 

Here is the new law:

16-4-105. Conditions of release on bond.

(6) (c) NOTWITHSTANDING SUBSECTION (6)(a) OR ANY OTHER PROVISION OF

THIS SECTION, IF A PERSON POSSESSES A VALID REGISTRY IDENTIFICATION

CARD, AS DEFINED IN SECTION 25-1.5-106 (2)(e), THAT ESTABLISHES THAT

HE OR SHE IS A PATIENT WHO USES MEDICAL MARIJUANA, THE COURT SHALL

NOT REQUIRE AS A CONDITION OF ANY BOND THAT THE PERSON ABSTAIN

FROM THE USE OF MEDICAL MARIJUANA.
