Medical Marijuana Enforcement Division launches redundant private caregiver registry

After a long delay, the state Medical Marijuana Enforcement Division has begun implementing a private caregiver registry -- despite caregivers being handled by a separate government agency.

State law crafted in response 2010's House Bill 1284 requires the MMED to keep track of private caregiver grow locations -- a useless redundancy considering caregivers have been registered with the CDPHE since the MMJ program began in 2001.
