Medical marijuana: Rob Corry wouldn't sign MMJ clean-up bill if he were John Hickenlooper

Last October, attorney Rob Corry wrote to John Hickenlooper to ask the then-Denver mayor to stop prosecuting Lacy Lee, a woman busted for smoking pot at a pro-cannabis rally; the case was later dropped. Now, Corry's written to Hick again, this time to offer expert analysis on HB 1043, a bill to clean-up aspects of last year's MMJ regulatory package. If Hickenlooper asks if he should sign the bill, what would Corry tell him? No.
