BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — The home county of the University of Colorado is the latest to drop pending marijuana possession cases in the wake of a public vote to legalize the drug.
Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett told the Daily Camera newspaper Wednesday his office would drop possession cases under an ounce for adults (http://bit.ly/X8NnEf). He said the effect would be minimal because his office already considers marijuana a low priority.
Garnett said overwhelming support in Boulder County for Colorado’s Amendment 64 would make it highly unlikely a jury would ever reach a guilty verdict in any of those cases.
“You’ve seen an end to mere possession cases in Boulder County under my office,” Garnett said.
