Cannabis Seed: Proposed medical-marijuana database In Columbia worries some patient advocates
Currently, the registry is maintained by the Colorado Department of Health and Environment and can be accessed by police officers only when they need to confirm the enrolment status of a person in custody. The Cannabis Therapy Institute, one of the state’s more outspoken patient-rights groups, calls the new plans a violation of the Constitutional amendment that legalized medical marijuana in 2000.
The new regulations which are still in the proposal stage (which include a system for tracking marijuana from seed to sale in an effort to avoid it leaking into the black market) rely heavily on information technology. Grow operations will be outfitted with cameras that will be monitored by state regulators, and cameras also will track sales to individuals at the cash register. Patient advocates long have worried that information on the registry would be used by police to target patients; although legal in Colorado for medical use, marijuana is illegal under federal law no matter what the use. The rules will be adopted after a rule-making hearing, which could take place as early as next month. It would appear that while a few forward thinking areas in America have embraced the benefits of the cannabis seed, the federal government is trailing behind.
