Among the sign-wielding protesters, Jason Lauve voiced his feeling on the new legislation.
“This is going to destroy me as a patient,” Lauve said.
He worries the medical-marijuana prices will increase and dispensaries will be run out of town, he said.
A ski slope collision in 2004 left Lauve with a broken back, he said, and he relies on medical marijuana to keep functioning. In August 2009 a Boulder jury acquitted Lauve of charges he kept too much medical marijuana in his home, he said. He had 34 ounces of the green stuff when police raided his house, he said.
