Denver (AP) -- A medical marijuana patient and advocate is taking
his fight over the legality of medical marijuana laws to federal
court. According to the Denver Post, Brandon Baker is arguing that Colorado's laws regulating medical-marijuana dispensaries are an unconstitutional violation of medical-marijuana patients' life and liberty. The federal government has warned dispensaries they could be subject to prosecution because use of the drug is still barred by federal law.
