Medical pot lawyer files complaint on Colo. raid

DENVER — A medical marijuana lawyer wants the U.S. Department of Justice to discipline agents who raided a household marijuana grow in suburban Denver.

Rob Corry filed a complaint against the Drug Enforcement Administration on Saturday.

He says the Highlands Ranch raid Friday violated the agency's new policy on enforcing drug laws in the 14 states that allow medical marijuana.

The policy says authorities shouldn't target those who are in clear compliance with their state laws.

Denver DEA Special Agent in Charge Jeffrey Sweetin says Colorado's law doesn't address the sale of marijuana, and the grow posed a safety concern because it was near a school. But he says he doesn't plan to crack down on dispensaries that profit from selling medical marijuana in Colorado.
