Interesting pathway for distribution. Unlike the first two comments I disagree that these guys will likely get in trouble. This is just the beginning of this type of workaround until the details of marijuana retail sales can be established. This type of "donation" sale is already prolific in Boulder and Denver retail shops with no reporting of law enforcement getting involved.
Its a pretty bold statement that Dan May or law enforcement is going to give 2 cents about this activity based on the recent prosecutorial failure and subsequent lawsuits regarding medical marijuana. Law enforcement and the courts privy is to use our tax payer money as wisely as possible in enforcing laws on the books and prosecuting the cases with the best chance of conviction. Going after this ant on an already bustling ant hill would be a massive waste of time and public funds. This is strengthened by the fact everyone knows 95% of medical marijuana sales are for recreational use and no one has tried to chase that dragon down. Welcome to the tip of the iceberg it's going to get much more interesting over the next year.
Good luck with enforcement. It will simply cost the county thousands of dollars in wasted legal fees. Excellent progressive choice.
That is a laugh NewPolemic, when the average age of a new medical marijuana card is 22 year old obviously they are not being handed out to the people who would really benefit medically from marijuana (which is in fact a very small genuine portion of the population). This whole "medical marijuana" movement is a crock to try to backdoor legalization and it will eventually work. The public at large would benefit in a much more significant way by legalizing marijuana/hemp and treating is just like alcohol and tobacco which would include heavy use taxes which would benefit everyone not just the people who enjoy smoking pot or use it for medical relief. No one should be fooled into believing that these dispensary owners are providing a medical service for the majority of their client base. Let evolve here and let everyone reap the rewards of legalizing something that should have never been outlawed in the first place.
