(AP) — The Colorado Supreme Court has ruled people may use medical marijuana while serving probation.
KMGH-TV reports that the state’s highest court issued the ruling.
The justices approved an exception for prosecutors to show evidence that using the drug would run counter to achieving the probation goals in individual cases.
Records say the case stemmed from a lower court decision to prevent a woman who pleaded guilty to DUI from using medical marijuana during her 12 months of unsupervised probation.
