COLORADO ATTORNEY GENERAL SAYS AMENDMENT 64 DOES NOT AUTHORIZE EXTRACTION OF BUTANE HASH OIL
DENVER—The Colorado Attorney General’s Office has the obligation to defend Colorado law. In execution of that responsibility, the office will respond to certain district court cases regarding whether Amendment 64 allows for an individual to extract marijuana oil. Earlier this month, the office filed a brief in Mesa County and today will file a brief in Denver District Court regarding this matter.
The following statement is to be attributed to Colorado Attorney General John Suthers:
“Amendment 64 expressly prohibits an individual from making marijuana oil and unfortunately, Colorado is experiencing a real public safety issue as a result of unsafe and unlicensed manufacturing and production. The Blue Book made it clear that Amendment 64 allowed for the responsible and safe use of marijuana, so to decriminalize dangerous and unreasonable behavior in which people are getting hurt and houses are blowing up, defies the intent of the voters.”
