DENVER (AP) - A prominent marijuana attorney in Colorado has given notice he'll be suing over new medical pot regulations, including requirements that dispensaries grow most of the marijuana they sell.
Robert Corry of Denver sent a letter to state Attorney General John Suthers Friday say he intends to sue. Corry says he will argue that the grow-your-own requirement is akin to requiring a grocery store to grow the food it sells. Corry also plans to challenge other provisions, including residency requirements.
Corry asked Suthers whether he plans to defend Colorado's marijuana law. The Republican attorney general is a prominent critic of the law.
Suthers didn't immediately return a call to The Associated Press.
Corry served on a state working group to refine marijuana regulations but has criticized some of the law's provisions.
