Pot Locations a Growing Concern

medical Denver, CO -- Let's get this straight: Medical marijuana growers want to be up-front and legit by getting government licensure, but they're lobbying to keep secret the locations of their pot-growing operations.

Lawmakers, apparently, have kowtowed to this request, adding an amendment to a medical marijuana bill moving through the legislature that would keep the addresses of grow facilities out of state and local records.

It's a bad amendment, and we hope to see lawmakers backtrack on it. People have a right to know whether there is a grow operation in their neighborhood. It's particularly important to someone who is considering buying property.

Wouldn't you want to know if there is a pot-growing facility nearby that could be raided by federal agents or perhaps be a magnet for illicit activity?

The secrecy measure is only part of the wide-ranging medical marijuana regulation bill that is nearing the finish line.

We have repeatedly stated our objections to the bill, which center on the measure legitimizing the dispensary system — a system that never was envisioned in the medical marijuana constitutional amendment.

The system that operated for nine years without dispensaries is true to the measure voters approved in 2000, and was less given to abuse.
