Westword is reporting that Kathleen Chippi's Patient and Caregiver Rights Litigation Project has received an answer back from the state, and the news isn't great. (See here for our previous coverage of the lawsuit.)

"The State responded by saying none of the plaintiffs have standing, because no one has a fundamental right to medical marijuana in Colorado," [Chippi] says. "They responded to every single paragraph in our lawsuit by saying they're ignorant as to how to respond, since no one has standing. And that's a reference to the Jason Beinor case."
