It’s the sort of story that inspires locals to use the phrase “Only in Boulder:” Tyler Mason has been fired as a deputy and is facing multiple charges for allegedly trying to smuggle marijuana edibles and chewing tobacco into Boulder County Jail, where he worked.

On September 23, according to a Boulder County Sheriff’s Office release, an inmate at the facility told another staffer that a fellow jailee had arranged with a deputy to obtain the edibles and chaw.

Douglas County residents can no longer legally grow 99 marijuana plants in each household. The Douglas County Board of Commissioners voted on Tuesday, August 9, to reduce that number to twelve.

The new ordinance regulates the growth, cultivation and processing of marijuana in private residences, echoing ordinances passed in the City of Denver in late 2013 and the City of Boulder earlier this year.

“Just because marijuana is legal in Colorado, it does not mean that you should grow as much as you want, wherever you want,” said Chief Deputy Steve Johnson of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.

When a Colorado community doesn’t want a marijuana cultivation warehouse, some people assume that the area is anti-pot and, therefore, anti-Colorado. However, one Boulder farming community is fighting a battle against marijuana that has nothing to do with any stereotypes about the plant.
Paul Cure of Cure Organic Farms has spent the last ten years building up a certified organic farm with his wife, Anne. To be certified organic by the government, the Cures had to pay thousands of dollars in fees and maintain strict requirements on their growing and handling of food.

Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett is dismissing all pending marijuana possession cases under an ounce, as well as paraphernalia cases for those under 21

If you have an active marijuana possession case pending against you in Boulder, one of Colorado’s most liberal areas, it’s your lucky day.

District Attorney Stan Garnett said he will be dismissing all such cases in Boulder County due to the “overwhelming support” voters gave Amendment 64, which taxes and regulates cannabis similarly to alcohol, reports Mitchell Byars at the Boulder Daily Camera.

“You’ve seen an end to mere possession cases in Boulder County under my office,” Garnett said.

The University of Colorado at Boulder will be on lockdown this Friday, complete with campus police conducting checkpoints and demanding proper ID from everyone in sight. The reason? Authorities want to finally snuff out the school’s annual pro-pot rally. 

Attorney Robert J. Corry, Jr., filed an emergency temporary restraining order in Boulder District Court on Thursday, asking the court to prohibit the University of Colorado at Boulder from closing its campus to the public on 4/20.

The UC-Boulder administration has said they will shut down the entire campus to non-students for the entire day on Friday in order to stop a legal protest that is protected by the First Amendment. Students will be allowed to enter campus only if they show their student ID card.
“What the university is trying to do is kill a fly with a nuclear ICBM,” Corry told The Raw Story‘s Stephen C. Webster on Thursday. “It’s completely overreaching to shut down an entire campus to all members of the public.”

Five years ago today, Jason Lauve was acquitted in a high-profile medical marijuana case decided on the cusp of the MMJ boom. Since the conclusion of the landmark trial, Lauve is astonished by everything that’s happened on the Colorado pot scene. But while he’s optimistic about the future for both cannabis and hemp, for which he’s become a well-known activist, he acknowledges that not all the changes have been positive.
Lauve broke his back in 2004 after being hit by a snowboarder. He subsequently became a medical marijuana patient under the provisions of Amendment 20, the measure that legalized the concept after being approved by voters in 2000. But in June 2008, he was arrested in Boulder County for allegedly having too much weed — two pounds, two ounces.

Hemp growing in Colorado.


Thirteen producers have registered to legally grow hemp in Colorado in the month since registration began, according to the state Department of Agriculture. However, those thirteen producers hold a total of twenty registrations, as several of them are registered to grow in more than one location or for more than one purpose. Ten of the registrations are for commercial purposes, while the other ten are for research and development. The Denver Westword spoke with three producers, who told the paper about their plans for planting marijuana’s sober stepsister.
