Colorado Supreme Court rules convicts can use medical [cannabis] while on probation

The Colorado Supreme Court just ruled that denying a criminal defendant the right to use medical marijuana while serving probation is a violation of the state’s constitution.

According to the state’s medical marijuana statute, a defendant cannot be prevented from using medical marijuana unless the prosecution can supply evidence showing that this prohibition is necessary. In [this] case, the judge did the exact opposite, by placing the burden of proof on the defendant. The ruling establishes that medical marijuana use is protected under the State constitution.
