Medical marijuana grow limits go before Denver City Council: MMJ advocate predicts fix is in

At 3:30 p.m. today, the Denver City Council will consider zoning language to limit the amount of medical marijuana grown in residential locations. Some advocates believe this measure would severely restrict the rights of MMJ caregivers in Denver -- among them Colorado Coalition for Patients and Caregivers' Robert Chase, who's shared his objections with city council. Not that he thinks his complaints will make any difference.
