The Debate Over Marijuana Concentrate

COLORADO:  People across Colorado are facing felony charges for something that the state’s best-known marijuana attorney says is perfectly legal.

Attorney Robert J. Corry Jr. says manufacturing marijuana concentrate is a constitutionally protected righter under Amendment 64.

“There aren’t that many fundamental rights out there and this is one of them,” Corry said.

Yet, court records show that from Jan. 1 through Oct. 6, prosecutors in at least 10 different counties have charged at least 26 people with a felony under a state statute that says it is illegal “to process of manufacture any marijuana or marijuana concentrate” without authorization.
