Medical Marijuana Assistance Program of the Rockies outlines legislative strategy

Update below: Last week, Medical Marijuana Assistance Program of the Rockies co-founder Vincent Palazzotto shared his relief that a health department advisory committee struck draft language that might have outlawed mobile MMJ clinics like one his organization uses.

Now, he hopes HB 1043, a new medical marijuana bill, will allow dispensaries to donate or discount medication for indigent patients.
