Ft. Collins cops give couple back dead pot
FORT COLLINS, Colorado ” A Fort Collins couple who once faced drug charges after police seized their medical marijuana plants say they may sue authorities because the plants were returned to them dead.
Attorney Brian Vicente says police seized 39 live plants in August 2006 from his clients, Jim and Lisa Masters.
Drug charges against the Masters were dropped in June. The couple say they are medical marijuana patients and were also providing marijuana to several patients who were licensed to get it.
Their plants were returned Monday.
Police spokeswoman Rita Davis says the department had no responsibility to care for the plants because the couple did not have documentation to show the plants were legal.
