DENVER—The Colorado Court of Appeals has ruled that a judge was correct when he ordered Colorado Springs police to return more than 60 pounds of marijuana to a cancer patient who was acquitted of drug charges. Attorneys for Robert Crouse say the victory adds clout to a pending lawsuit against the city over the destruction of Crouse's marijuana, which they say spoiled while in police custody. According to the Colorado Springs Gazette ( http://tinyurl.com/n7q8prw ), Crouse wants to be reimbursed for up to $300,000. At issue is a provision in the state constitution requiring that police properly care for any pot seized during medical marijuana investigations and that it be returned should the owner be acquitted of wrongdoing. Authorities said returning the marijuana could violate federal law. ——— Information from: The Gazette, http://www.gazette.com Policies Report an Error Contact Us Submit a News Tip
