Marijuana Caregivers in Colorado

Urgent Update 29 November 2010

Medical Marijuana Users and Caregivers: Action Required

The Medical Marijuana Registry program is asking for input from the public and interested parties to help draft a rule to take to the Marijuana Advisory Committee regarding primary caregivers. The proposition that the voters approved in 2000 stated that a primary caregiver must have significant responsibility for managing the well-being of a patient who has a debilitating medical condition.

A new 2010 Colorado law requires a working definition for significant responsibility for managing the well-being of a patient. The 2010 law also states that a primary caregiver simply supplying medical marijuana itself is NOT sufficient to have significant responsibility for managing the well-being of a patient who has a debilitating medical condition.

Comments on how to define significant responsibility for managing the well-being of a patient suffering from one of the qualifying medical conditions should be sent to cdphemedicalmarijuanacomments@cdphe.state.co.us

Comments will be accepted until December 3, 2010. The comments will be used at a Medical Marijuana Advisory Committee meeting scheduled for December 8 2010

  1. This new law comes in by July 1 2011 and will impact local Colorado caregivers.

  2. The Advisory Committee you refer to is packed with bureaucrats and prohibitionists (Lt. Ernie Martinez of the DPD and the Colorado Drug Investigators Association, for one). The few members who are supposed to be representing the interests of patients have failed to stand up to the rest of the Committee, much less the CDPHE itself.

  3. The laws in question, SB109 &; HB1284 unconstitutionally obtrude the State into the doctor-patient relationship, intimidate doctors from making recommendations, and unconstitutionally attempt to curtail caregivers’ rights under our Constitution.

    The input that is needed is sustained, harsh, and very public criticism of the ongoing attempt by the political Establishment of Colorado to roll back the decision of the voters (enshrined as Article XVIII, Section 14 of our Constitution) to permit those whose doctors have recommended it to grow and use of cannabis.
