Connecticut Attorney Heath D. Harte released a statement today commenting on the persistency of the illicit marijuana trade in Colorado, despite the recent legalization of the substance in the state.
Heath D. Harte, an attorney at law with over twenty-five years of experience practicing in Connecticut and New York, released a statement today commenting on a recent report that the illegal marijuana trade in Colorado continues to persist despite the recent legalization of the substance in the state.
According to a recent report in the http://www.abajournal.com/news/article/despite_legalization_black_market_marijuana_ activities_continue_in_colorado/ [American Bar Association Journal] (Despite legalization, black-market marijuana activities continue in Colorado, 4/4/2014), many defense attorneys in Colorado have not seen a dip in the number of marijuana dealers that they represent. According to the report, the premium price placed on legal marijuana due to taxation could be a factor in the decision by some users to purchase it on the black market, where prices are significantly lower.
“This experiment in legalization is still in its infancy, so it remains to be seen how this will play out,” said Heath D. Harte. “The situation is somewhat volatile right now, raising interesting legal questions for those who choose to indulge in or distribute illegal marijuana. Colorado and Washington are essentially serving as the test cases for the legalization of marijuana, so it will be interesting to see what implications this will have on the law in other states around the country.”
