Though medical marijuana is legal in Colorado, a recent wave of dispensary closures and attacks serve as a reminder that the state still has a hard stance when it comes to marijuana, legal or otherwise. This is affirmed with the recent raid on a Fort Collins grow house of a man that investigators believe moved from Georgia to Colorado with the intention of illegally growing marijuana.
26-year-old Ryan Conrad-Davis was arrested on Wednesday after investigators seized 25 plants and several ounces of processed marijuana from his home. Conrad-Davis is being charged with marijuana cultivation, possession, and distribution. The tip-off came from Georgia investigators, who believe that Conrad-Davis moved from Georgia to Colorado with the intent to grow weed and mail it back to Georgia. Perhaps the young man thought that Colorado’s medical marijuana legislation would mean an easier time growing pot, but that does not seem to be the case. There is no evidence that would suggest that Conrad-Davis was growing the weed for medicinal purposes.
The lesson? Colorado seems to be stepping up it’s attacks again marijuana growers and both state and federal law enforcement seem to be getting in on the action.
