Dab connoisseurs in Colorado beware.
Felony charges have been popping up left and right, since marijuana legalization took effect, for something that at least one marijuana attorney is deeming "perfectly legal".
According to Attorney Robert J. Corry Jr., manufacturing marijuana concentrate is constitutionally protected under Amendment 64, however, court records and data are painting a different picture.
From January 1st through October 6th this year alone, prosecutors in 10 distinct counties throughout Colorado have charged at least 26 people with felony charges due to a state declared statute claiming that it is illegal "to process or manufacture any marijuana or marijuana concentrate" without legal authority, according to reports.
One instance of this occurred this year in April, where Paul Mannoioni was accused of manufacturing marijuana concentrates, which accidentally caused an explosion, sending him and two others to the hospital.
Corry claims that "he was operating legally under Amendment 64 and accidents do happen, but accidents do not mean something is a crime."
Other legal analysts such as Scott Robinson of NBC News, disagree with Corry's claim stating that "possession of up to an ounce of marijuana concentrate is legal, but you have to have a license to manufacture."
It appears as though until the issue is resolved in courts, legally making your own dabs in Colorado will remain as hot as a heated domeless titanium nail.
