Patient and Caregiver Rights Litigation Project

Protecting patient rights through the courts.

"It is clear that marijuana law in Colorado has gotten out of control. Before 2009, we had only 3 pages of marijuana law. Now we have over 600 pages of marijuana law. Most of it is bad law, which is both bad for businesses and bad for medical marijuana patients."

The Patient and Caregiver Rights Litigation Project is one of the only patient-centered advocacy groups in Colorado. Please join us in helping patients achieve the best quality of life with minimum interference from the government.

PCRLP is currently involved in 3 lawsuits in Colorado:

1) First Medical Marijuana Federal Preemption Challenge (Coats v. Dish Network)
PCLRP was the only patient advocacy organization to file an amicus ("friend of the court") brief in the case of Coats v. Dish Network, which is being deliberated on by the Colorado Supreme Court. This case will set precedent in Colorado and nationwide on whether medical marijuana use is a "right". Oral arguments were heard in September 2014. A decision is expected in January 2015.

2) Marijuana Fifth Amendment Lawsuit Seeks to Overturn Self-Incriminating State Licensing Requirements Colorado marijuana businesses would revert back to pre-2010 business models protected by the Constitution.
On behalf of PCRLP and others, attorney Robert J. Corry, Jr. filed a lawsuit on Dec. 5, 2014 in Denver District Court seeking to permanently end Colorado's marijuana self-incriminating regulatory licensing system, on the grounds that the regulations violate a citizen's Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, since marijuana remains illegal under federal law. PCRLP brings up precedent-setting cases to support argument: US vs Leary in the US Supreme Court (1969) and Colorado vs Duleff in the Colorado Supreme Court (1973). Click here for more info.

3) Lawsuit Against CDPHE for Stealing Patient Application Fees
The Patient and Caregiver Rights Litigation Project (PCRLP) filed a lawsuit on Dec. 16, 2014 against the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) asking the Denver District Court to block implementation of the Medical Marijuana Research Grant Program on the grounds that over-collected medical marijuana patient fees in the Medical Marijuana Cash Fund cannot be legally used to fund the program.
