Colorado State University warns gardeners not to aid medical pot growers

April 6, 2010

FORT COLLINS, COLO. — Colorado State University employees certified as “master gardeners” are being warned by university attorneys not to give advice to anyone about growing medical marijuana because the drug remains illegal under federal laws.

CSU spokesman Brad Bohlander says prospective medical marijuana growers have contacted several of the gardeners, which have offices in almost every state county. The offices are meant as a link between academia and Colorado’s agricultural community.

Colorado voters approved marijuana use for medical purposes in 2000 under Amendment 20. But CSU attorneys say that because federal law makes the drug illegal, employees will assume “personal liability” if they are charged with helping marijuana growers.
