Supreme Court declines to hear MMJ case

Posted By on Tue, Jan 11, 2011 at 9:56 AM

Yesterday, the Colorado Supreme Court opted not to hear the case brought by the Patient and Caregiver Rights Litigation Project, filed five days ago with the higher court in attempt to skip the process of starting in lower court and working up. The group was seeking to have parts of House Bill 1284 and Senate Bill 109 overturned.

"Apparently, the Supreme Court does not think that it is a matter of great urgency that sick and dying people in Colorado are being denied their constitutional rights of safe and confidential access to medicine," says Kathleen Chippi, creator of the Project, in a news release. "In the meantime, the Department of Revenue and the state legislature will continue with impunity to enact unconstitutional laws that harm patients.

"We are being treated like second-class citizens yet again."

Chippi, through her attorney Andrew Reid, will now file her case in district court.
