Medical marijuana patient-tracking program moving forward

The Colorado Bureau of Investigations and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment are tentatively set to meet next week to discuss a computer system that tracks Colorado medical marijuana patients for law enforcement.

The Medical Marijuana Technology Project came to light earlier this month when it was mentioned in a proposed bill that would have shifted more than $9 million in surplus medical marijuana patient registry fees to various marijuana-related agencies.
