AG objects to keeping locations of medical marijuana grows secret

Colorado's attorney general is objecting to plans to keep the locations of medical marijuana grows secret.

The state Senate this week voted to keep that information off-limits to protect grow operations from being burglarized.

Attorney General John Suthers says people have a right to know if their neighborhood has a grow operation. He says banks and pharmacies also face the chance of theft but their locations are still known.

The secrecy provision was included in proposed regulations for medical marijuana dispensaries, growers and product makers. The regulations face a final vote in the House before they can be sent
to the governor. That vote is expected Tuesday, a day before lawmakers must adjourn for the year.
