The state isn't letting any grass grow under its feet -- and may be looking at prohibiting grass growing in your basement.
The Colorado Board of Health has scheduled an Emergency Rulemaking Hearing for 10:30 a.m. today, to discuss -- and possibly eliminate -- its definition of "significant responsibility for managing the well-being of a patient." The state of emergency was created by last week's Court of Appeals interpretation of "primary caregiver," a definition left purposely vague in Amendment 20, which was passed by voters back in 2000. But according to the Court of Appeals, a caregiver must do more than simply provide medical marijuana to a patient -- marijuana that may have been grown in a sympathetic person's basement, as in the People v. Clendenin case that led to the ruling.
