The Colorado medical marijuana patient population was down 25% in September, 44% in October, and expected to lower further in November. Many medical marijuana centers are starting to consider closing shop due to lose of revenue. The Colorado attorney general has waged war against medical marijuana and recently made a statement that he found the case that he thinks will deconstruct the industry through case law, this issue is now in the Supreme Court and they are deciding whether to review it or not. Eric Holder will not commit to his earlier statements to leave compliant medical marijuana businesses in states with medical marijuana laws alone. One media outlet reported yesterday that the Feds are going to issue cease and desist letters to medical marijuana centers within 1000 ft. of schools – demanding 45 day closure. This is the first case of federal intervention in what has historically been a state privilege to regulate.
