Colorado sat in the upper half of the ranked states
Colorado used to to be one of the few states in the country with legal medical marijuana. But that has changed rapidly, with the majority of the states offering some kind of access to medical marijuana. According to a prominent advocacy group, however, many of those states put severe restrictions on MMJ, making Colorado’s program look robust in comparison.
Medical marijuana advocacy group Americans for Safe Access just released its annual report card, which gives a brief history of medical marijuana in this country and then grades and ranks all the states with MMJ programs. The 187-page report evaluates each one according to five categories:
- Patient rights and civil protection from discrimination
- Access to medicine
- Ease of navigation
- Consumer safety and provider requirements
