Marijuana advocate seeks $ for HB 1284 suit, chides lawyers who pledged to sue but didn't

kathleen chippi.JPG
Kathleen Chippi.
Kathleen Chippi is among the area's most active medical marijuana activists; see a video of her below going after both current Denver mayoral candidate Chris Romer and Colorado Attorney General John Suthers. Her latest mission: to raise funds for a lawsuit to stop official implementation of HB 1284, Colorado's main MMJ regulatory measure. She's already spent thousands on the quest, and criticizes attorneys who promised to sue last May but haven't.

Chippi, the former owner of the dispensary known as One Brown Mouse Parlor/Cannabis Healing Arts, has already made one high-profile attempt to stop HB 1284. As documented on her website, CannabisLawsuits.com, attorney Andrew Reid filed a petition with the Colorado Supreme Court on January 5 challenging the measure on a constitutional basis. (Read the petition below.) Five days later, the court refused to hear the case -- meaning it needed to be re-filed at the district court level.

This ruling slowed down the process in a big way, but Chippi was eager to move forward anyway. However, she didn't have enough money to do so then, and still doesn't. How much does she need?

"The quote from the attorneys is $25,000 to $50,000," she notes. "Right now, most of the cost goes to prepping our expert testimony. The arguments are already written, but the attorney has to spend hours with each person testifying to make sure we know what we're saying when we get on the stand. It's labor in the process of going to court."

For months, Chippi has tried to raise this amount with little luck so far. And after funding the unsuccessful Supreme Court bid with $25,000 of her own money, she's tapped out -- although she believes she's owed a considerable chunk of change. Shortly after the passage of HB 1284, she says she gave an attorney she declines to name a $5,000 retainer toward a future lawsuit -- and not only has such a suit never materialized, but the attorney has yet to return the money.

She's equally frustrated with other lawyers who promised action last year but haven't delivered, in her view. Chippi points to a May 17, 2010 press release -- read it below -- entitled "Attorneys Announce Plan to Sue if House Bill 1284 is Approved." Prominent figures name-checked in it include Brian Vicente, Rob Corry, Jessica Corry, Bob Hoban, Lauren Davis and Sean McAllister.

The entire process has left her feeling "traumatized," she admits. "I had a hundred of my patients who wanted to be plaintiffs last year, and now I've got more. People randomly come up to me, and I say, 'Sure, you can be a plaintiff.' But we can't get started unless I raise the money."

The clock is ticking. Full implementation of HB 1284 takes place on July 1, "and if we don't file before then, we can't get an injunction," she says. "We want an injunction, because that means everyone who was in business under the constitutional amendment gets to remain in business until the courts decide if HB 1284 is constitutional. But after July 1, patient privacy will be gone. Yes, you'll be on video, and all your medical records will be accessible to the Colorado Department of Revenue's information division and any law enforcement agency -- and that includes the feds.

"The sale point on donating for a medical marijuana center is this: The feds are going to bust you. It's just a matter of when. And if we get an injunction, we're operating under the constitution, just like we did before 1284. The feds didn't bother us for nine-and-a-half-years before then, and I attribute them being more interested in Colorado to the general assembly creating 1284."

The odds against Chippi are long, she knows. But she's convinced her goal is not only just but reasonable.

"People call me a radical because I want to sue," she concedes. "But it's not radical to want to abide by the constitution -- and that's all I'm asking for."

"While Kathleen is definitely a strong advocate for patients' rights, and I have little doubt that there are portions of 1284 that are unconstitutional, her account ignores many critical facts of  the past year."  Lauren Davis

"With I have tremendous respect for Ms. Chippi's passion, her attacks on myself and other attorneys is misplaced."  Jessica Corry

Both of these quotes came within the last week because I called out the quoted attorneys who promised a lawsuit to protect the constitution from hb1284 and for not fulfilling their promises.  So to prove I suck you quote 2 of the 5 attorneys who promised patients they would stand up for their rights and instead traumatized them with lies and no lawsuit. 

http://blogs.westword.com/late...

This is all you have for evidence that I suck?  Come on you can do better than that......though I see you not quoting the whole quotes, just the negative side.

With I have tremendous respect for Ms. Chippi's passion, her attacks on myself and other attorneys is misplaced.  As I told her organization in an email earlier in the week (before this story posted), while our formal coalition has dissolved, the many attorneys Ms. Chippi attacks continue to work together, having collectively sued several local governments (with some of these case now headed to appeals), spoken--at no cost--at dozens of educational forums, and lobbied--often at our own expense--at the local and state levels to promote the rights of indigent patients or caregivers.  We continue to do so.  We don't, however, put out a press release every time that we sue or volunteer our time.  For anyone interested in learning more specifics about my firm's efforts, please visit our Web site. www.hobanandfeola.com.  The truth speaks for itself.

 While Kathleen is definitely a strong advocate for patients' rights, and I have little doubt that there are portions of 1284 that are unconstitutional, her account ignores many critical facts of  the past year.  At a legislative strategy meeting that I volunteered my time to attend, Ms. Chippi said that she had hired an attorney to bring a direct action to the Supreme Court to challenge 1284.  I offered free assistance, specifically stating I could do research, review the briefs, prep her attorney for oral argument, or whatever was needed.  She responded by saying that she wasn't ready to tell me who was in charge of her suit.  And neither she nor her attorney have ever contacted me to accept my offer of free help.  Only after the Supreme Court rejected the lawsuit did Ms. Chippi lash out at her fellow advocates.  However, in our defense, her lack of interest in accepting our assistance indicated she had things under control.  And from a judicial economy standpoint, we also saw no need to bring multiple suits in lower courts if the Supreme Court was going to decide these issues.  Unfortunately, law suits cost money.  Filing fees cost hundreds of dollars;  transcripts can cost thousands of dollars;  expert witnesses charge for their time;  serving subpoenas on the legislators and witnesses costs, and more.  That is not money that goes into the attorneys' pockets, as Ms. Chippi makes it seem.   Her account also fails to mention that many (if not all) of the attorneys listed above have not been sitting on their duffs for the past year.  I believe each attorney on the list has suits pending to challenge different portions of 1284 - whether it be challenging the authority of locals to ban Centers or defending caregivers who were trying to serve the seriously ill or working within the legislative process to affect change, each has dedicated their time (often pro bono or at reduced costs).  The fact that not every attorney is a media hound who seeks public praise for our efforts does not mean that we are ignoring what needs to be done.Challenges to 1284 will happen.  There are portions that many of us believe are blatantly unconstitutional;  there are portions that are questionably Constitutional;  there are portions that actually protect individuals in the supply chain.  Sadly, it will take years to litigate these issues.  In the meantime, advocates need to come together.  Tearing each other down will not help in the long-run.All of that said, SUPPORT CANNABIS LAWSUITS, whether with your time or money.  The fate of your Constitutional rights is in your hands.

This article lacks the facts. The only thing keeping the Feds out of Colorado is 1284. All the other states with poorly written voter initiatives have been raided by the feds (California, Montana, Washington, Michigan, Nevada, etc). Amendment 20 does not protect marijuana businesses, it only protects an individual caregiver and his/her patients. Amendment 20 does not protect employees of the caregiver or growers for the caregiver.

Most Medical Marijuana Advocates do not support Chippi. Although she has good intentions, her quest to overturn 1284 will bring an end to medical marijuana in Colorado.  We should push back against onerous provisions and fight those provisions on a case by case basis, but an across the board injunction is ill-sited.

 Why are people surprised that Corry, Vincente, Edson, are not suing over 1284?  HB1284 hugely benefits their PAYING clients.  HB 1043 puts the nail in the coffin for caregivers.  Both bills are a result of the lobbying efforts of MMIG AND JOSH STANLEY of Budding Health.  They are driving patients to their MMCs.  Pure greed in my opinion.

Unfortunately most patients have no idea of what has happened.  And yes, the Feds will seize the patient records and go through them.  The good thing is that they have bigger fish to fry.

Kathleen says:

"People call me a radical because I want to sue," she concedes. "Butit's not radical to want to abide by the constitution -- and that's allI'm asking for."

Amen. Of course we should be abiding by our Constitution, and that is certainly not a radical notion.

And of course the regulations designed to supposedly "protect patients" were indeed a great way to reduce the competition a few select dispensaries were getting from other dispensaries and from Caregivers, the people mentioned in the Constitution to dispense the medicinal cannabis. Simply put, the new REGS were a fear-mongering play by a few to corner the MMJ market and to benefit from the increased black-market trade that will boom as dispensaries and caregivers are targeted and closed.

All caring dispensaries and all real patient-advocates should've been fighting all the undermining of our Constitutional Rights from the beginning, because the stated goal of the regs is TO CLOSE MOST OF THE DISPENSARIES DOWN (even if you don't really give a hoot about patients, it is not wise to back legislation designed to close your business).

Colorado had the strongest medical cannabis law in the nation because it was part of our Constitution. Shame on the attorneys and dispensary owners who sold out the patients and trampled CO's Constitution for a chance to make a ton of money.

Please wake up patients, and donate whatever you can toward the lawsuit that was supposed to happen as soon as the regs were signed but didn't happen because too many of the key players were blinded by greed. The regulations will continue to lead to more fear-mongering grandstanding from Democrat and Republican Nannies, like Levy trying to prevent medical cannabis patients from being able to drive legally.

Thanks for all your work and generosity, Kathleen. Hopefully, some astute and wealthy people will see how important this is -- not just for medical cannabis but for all states' rights -- and help fund this much-needed suit.

This whole regulatory, licensing, and enforcement structure is absurd.  There are substances that anyone, regardless of age or doctor approval, can buy over the counter at the supermarket that are more intoxicating or impairing, and dangerous (some deadly so) than marijuana.  Marijuana is child's play by comparison.  If it weren't for all the historical and cultural baggage that this plant carries, marijuana would just be considered another herbal supplement available at the supermarket with little regulation associated to it much like st john's wart, ginseng, and kava kava. The prominent medical and recreational marijuana advocates have failed disastrously by not fighting this colossal waste of tax payers' money and encroachment of individuals rights and freedoms.  Mason Tvert and his group SAFER has been claiming for years (factually so) that marijuana is less harmful than alcohol, but not one of the regulations passed in this state in the last few years reflect this reality. You would think the state is regulating uranium enrichment for personal use.  Pot smokers really are stupid.  The state is running rings around all you stupid stoners and you don't even realize.  Your leaders are retarded, and so are you followers.

The Patient and Caregiver Rights Litigation Project is an essential part of efforts to create a political movement for ending Prohibition.  We need to have a political and legal consensus among those who use and supply cannabis before we can make any further progress.  That those who were most successful in commercializing cannabis were the most enthusiastic about unconstitutional restrictions on caregivers is not surprising, but it underlines just how little they had and have to do with caregiving.  Anyone making money in MMJ should already be and have been supporting the constitutional right to cannabis, but it's not yet too late to do the right thing -- the rest of you are like a pig after a truffle.

Dan Hartman of the MMED says that their massive Patient and Medicine Tracking Database  and Surveillance System will be online by the fall. This will include tracking every patient purchase, from "seed to sale". This massive online database will be available to all MMCs and law enforcement, and will also track MMC inventory, MMC employees, MMC travel manifests, RFID tags on plants and medicine, and it will also allow you to report your taxes!

This will include video surveillance of every patient purchase, recordings accessible by law enforcement.

Watch this video of Dan Hartman, recorded on 5/17/11. He talks about the patient spying database at around minute 18:00http://www.ustream.tv/recorded...

You all should check your facts. The bill withholds patient privacy. The security cameras are no different than those at a bank or casino. The feds will not be seeing your medical records. 

Check the legislation.

So patients should not be uspet about the promised lawsuit that didn't happen for a year!  the truth does speak for itself.  And should not question an attorney who takes $5,000 and does nothing--including giving the money back?  Yeah, that's right.

Lmao we had and have the strongest laws in place what are you talking about taking multi yr's to help state trample our rights in California they tried trampling on there rights and the people where quick to sue the state and won so keep your stories to yourself how much money you aim to collect after it's all said and done ?

Lauren--why mis represent the above--your right, the meeting was about legislative strategy.....and was in regard to looking into lobbying the general assembly--Not my lawsuit--my lawsuit was being finished off when this meeting took place.  

When this press release was sent out--unprovoked by me--you worked with Rob Corry.  The legislative meeting was 5 or 6 months later. 

The REASON I had to hire Andrew Reid is because the above coalition of attorney's had abandoned the lawsuit over assisting higher paying clients who had so much confusion in the application process.

"Only after the Supreme Court rejected the lawsuit did Ms. Chippi lash out at her fellow advocates."  --What are you talking about?  lash out in Jan 2011 after the Supreme Court?  Please provide an example or evidence of any kind of lashing....please...?  "her fellow advocates?"  --  is that supposed to be you?  the attorney's?  My "fellow" advocates would have filed the lawsuit months ago. 

But it is rather convenient for attorney's to drag out the confusion, and pick up new confused clients all along the way.....One court challenge per unconstitutional issue sure takes more time and costs more.........than one that attacks all of them, immediately, like they are doing in MT.

Did anyone win a constitutional challenge since hb1284 passed a year ago?  I didn't hear of any, until last week when Andrew's Reid's law firm won one for the doctors....but would love to know of any others. 

I appreciate any pro bono work you and any attorney does for others.   I have not met anyone who has said--hey, so and so, did my criminal defense for free.  So I have no way of knowing if or when so and so deserves a thanks......fill me in and I'll thank you.

If giving a group of attorney's a YEAR before I get interviewed as to what I thought of a press release that was sent by them unprovoked promising a lawsuit that has not been filed in a YEAR--is an unfair lashing via this article--what can I say......I've been nice.

Are you kidding me who are most the Advocates you speak of how much are you getting payed to say your incorrect words? I would suggest you speak for your own self clown and not for others as 1284 is a scam and illegal and your wrong about A-20 not protecting dispensaries and employee's read the damn A-20 you have no clue for 9 yr's it worked just fine till the illegal HB1284 came about moron.

"Most Medical Marijuana Advocates do not support Chippi." 

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to to CLARIFY the accuracy in this comment--

Most MMJ 'Advocates' are funded and provided language nationwide by George Soros, billionaire currency manipulator.   They are NOT activists nor are they local--but PAID spokespeople for George.  George is the sitting chair on the DPA board.  All of the DPA board members have been involved in high levels of the federal reserve and Monsanto. 

Their goal is coming clearer by the day to the TRUE CANNABIS ACTIVISTS nationwide.....control cannabis and make money off of elaborate licensing 'schemes' for RICH, WHITE, MEN.  (they all still use the racist word, marijuana, created by BIG BUSINESS in 1937 via reefer madness)

I am NOT PAID or supported in ANY way by the same people who brought shitty language to (California Prop 19, Montana, Washington, Michigan, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Michigan, Delaware, New Jersey etc).  And I never will be--because I am not a greedy, self interested sell out.

Who is this big happy family of drug 'reform' groups?: Drug Policy Alliance (DPA), Marijuana Policy Project (MPP),

Safer, Sensible, Americans for Safe Access (ASA), Women's Marijuana Movement (WMM), Drug Reform Coalition ( DRC), Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP)

"The only thing keeping the Feds out of Colorado is 1284"   You couldn't be more wrong.  Tune in-- hb1284 brought DEA interest.   A20 protected patients and caregivers for 9 1/2 years w/o federal interference.  They came because the general assembly created hb1284 with Sensible and CMMR--(now dissolved but MMIG was created to cover many of the 'stakeholders').

"her quest to overturn 1284 will bring an end to medical marijuana in Colorado." 

Hahahaha--Kathleen Chippi has the 'power' to bring an end to mmj in CO?  Can I laugh any harder?  MMJ in Colorado sits in the constitution as a fundamental right.  No one person has the power to bring and end to A20.  The constitution can only be changed by a vote of the people.  But it is funny to here Chippi has no support from 'advocates' but yet can individually END mmj in CO.  Damn am I powerful! 

Before you try to attack me --  try to make some sense of it.

"Amendment 20 does not protect marijuana businesses, it only protects an individual caregiver and his/her patients. "  Correct--Patients and caregivers are protected under A20--NOT large scale grows.  hb1284 (state statute) NEVER overrides the constitution--so the General Assembly does not have the right to take away constitutional rights patients and caregivers had since 2000.  I guess you didn't read:

http://blogs.westword.com/late...

Quote Westword "....what he continues to emphasize is that the Department of Justice has no interest in going after an individual medical marijuana user or an individual caregiver, especially as originally defined by the constitutional amendment.  Dorschner does not exclude dispensaries or other retail operations from possible Justice Department scrutiny"

John Suthers.​"Our focus has been and will continue to be large scale drug-trafficking organizations and substantial marijuana grows -- and thus, substantial marijuana production," he continues.

So it seems hb1284 is the PROBLEM.  Your right BIG BUSINESS is NOT protected by the constitution and the Feds don't like it.

Watch it at 1 hr and 11 mins to hear about the CDPHE connection and then right into caregivers having to register.  Dan Hartman implies those who do not register as illegal............and hear Dan Hartman tell the MMC owners they do not deserve the unfair competition of caregivers........really unpleasant...........but reality as current as 2 days ago. 

Any mention or concern for the PATIENTS privacy or access by Dan Hartman or the DoR?  I couldn't find any.  He's more concerned with shutting down their caregivers and forcing them into MMC's. 

As usual, this is nauseating for the average individual.  Severe nausea qualifies one for mmj in CO. 

Tthat give us an interesting circle......  They make us sick, then force us to sign up  (which is unconstitutional and courts have ruled in patients favor)  if we chose cannabis over pills, and then herd us into MMC's with video surveillance, and provide law enforcement with everything they need to ruin your life.

I was inferring to amounts of and what patients purchase.  You know, seed to sale tracking with RFID chips on medicine bottles going home with patients?   But that doesn't matter.  The feds will see what ever they ask for and take whatever they want in a raid.

Call Montana or Washington and ask em if they seized patients info in their raids or if the Feds were kind enough to let owners sort through patients records  --  either the ones a month ago or the new RAIDS yesterday. 

The video surveillance is NOT the same as banks or casinos--as they are not required to run their video feed live over the internet to the DoR --  NOR ARE GAMBLERS BREAKING FEDERAL LAW.  Nor is mmj ANYTHING like gambling. 

Gaming is 'sport' and optional.  Patients acquiring mmj is not sport or optional.

All data collected by MMC's is accessible through verbal request to any inquiring law enforcement agency.  Most MMC's have their patients doctors recs on file -- those ARE MEDICAL RECORDS. 

We are in the longest WAR in the history of the US--74 years.  The FEDS have not ended or quit the war.  And yesterday they brought down ANOTHER state abiding dispensary in Washington state. 

I have checked the legislation, attended the meetings with the DoR, General Assembly and CDPHE and I do better than that, I read the news and talk to the patients, caregivers and physicians. 

I have yet to meet a patient, caregiver or physician who is pleased with their CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS being TRASHED.

And a big bong hit right in that big goof balls face if he ever thinks any true spirited caregiver will ever register.  It's about 1 hour 16 minutes in where he says "registering caregivers is a key part to controlling competition, and fair competition is what the dispensaries need". He is firm, and says while pointing a stern finger to himself "caregivers will be registering with us, they will be bringing in paperwork and documentation and we will be looking at them and who they are."

You people are crazy! I'll admit that I don't like being videotaped when purchasing meds, but your outrage is over the top. 

Seriously, calm down and maybe someone will take you seriously. The reason those lawyers didn't sue???? A political move, the threat was political, the issue is political and people use leverage like threatening lawsuits to get their voice heard. You know all about that Kathleen. Constitutional rights were TRASHED a long time ago in the US Supreme court and continue to be TRASHED. 

Fight back, but don't whine.

Have you ever thought that a regulated retail model could be a HUGE step toward full legalization, even if there are cameras involved and law enforcement officers can request information when an incident occurs?

If you think your information is private, and your medical records were private before HB1283, think again.

The FEDS (that amorphous evil institution accused here of all kinds of conspiracy) have been sping on americans since that WAR began. NOTHING NEW IS HAPPENING.

sounds like your the crazy one there, christopher.  You state that 'nothing new is happening', yet you propose the same old behavior from folks like us whom desire change.  The definition of crazy is 'doing the same action but expecting a different result'.

according to your logic we should calm down, fight back, but don't whine? who's whining?

we have seen railroad after railroad shoved down our constitutional throats, and when we speak up we are considered whiners?

i can't wait to see who's whining when this legislation goes into effect and people who have payed(work licenses, business permits, real estate, etc) are jacked out of their investments, any potential profits, and the Industry lobbyists are left holding bags full of cash for their representatives, while the rest of us look for black market herb, try to avoid cops and watch everything under the sun become infused with thc. 

which by the way would be 'crazy'
