Colorado Federal Judge Protects Freedom to Speak About Marijuana
Yesterday in Colorado, federal Judge Richard P. Matsch permanently struck down a provision of the new Colorado adult-use marijuana law as an unconstitutional violation of free speech. Essentially, the legislature had said that any magazine "whose primary focus is marijuana or marijuana businesses" could only be sold in retail marijuana stores or behind the counter in establishments open to people under the age of 21. The Westword has a good article here.
