Medical marijuana: Ann Marie Miller sues North Metro Drug Task Force, sheriff over MMJ raid

Last year, we told you about the case of medical marijuana caregiver Ann Marie Miller, who faced a felony cultivation charge for what she claimed was a legal number of plants. A new law subsequently lowered the offense to a misdemeanor, but the felony accusation against her remains. The latest? Miller's rejected a plea deal and has self-filed lawsuits against both the Adams County Sheriff's Office and the North Metro Drug Task Force.
