In Colorado even if you can legally grow marijuana, police can still charge you with growing it illegally. For the state to do that your cultivation has to fall outside allowable limits. That is how two licensed dispensers came to face felony charges for growing marijuana. The two answered their arrest with a lawsuit against the state for what they call a vague law. Colorado's original medical marijuana law allows each registered user to grow up to six plants, but that could be difficult and costly for some users to do correctly. When the state established licensed dispensaries it allowed legal users to designate a primary dispensary. That marijuana dispensary could then legally grow the plants on behalf of the client.
