Medical marijuana restrictions: Councilwoman doesn't see residential grow limits as a hardship

On Monday, the Denver City Council considered a proposal that would limit the number of marijuana plants grown in residential areas to twelve -- an idea that MMJ advocates at the Cannabis Therapy Institute see as a de facto caregiver ban.

Councilwoman Jeanne Robb, who's behind the plan, denies that and insists that she's open-minded about complaints. But she also feels something needs to be done.
