Marijuana giveaway with pipes purchase illegal, says attorney general, police chief
For his latest piece, Sallinger donned a wig -- unfortunately, the clip doesn't include any close-up shots of the very recognizable correspondent in disguise -- to visit a Santa Fe art gallery making a similar offer. But he also references 4 Strains, spotlighting the following ad; Sallinger doesn't mention where it appeared, but we found it in the February 14 edition of Westword.
The reporter then visits 4 Strains and notes that the owners believe their offer is completely legal.
Cut to a Denver City Council committee meeting with members quizzing police chief White about the ad and accompanying offer. "It is illegal," states a smiling, almost laughing White, "and we are investigating as we speak."
No such mirth from AG Suthers, who informs Sallinger that, in his views, the promotion is a "scam" and "indicative of some of the stuff that's going on to work around the letter of the law."
By the way, Legal Chronic Delivery, the company that promised to provide a free eighth of weed for each purchase of a $50 bumper sticker, pulled down its website shortly after our post about the service was published.
Likewise, there are noticeably fewer free marijuana ads on Denver Craigslist than there were a couple of weeks ago -- but they're not all gone. In addition to the 4 Strains spot mentioned above, there's also a deal mentioned earlier by Sallinger -- free medical marijuana to anyone sponsoring "my red wiggler worms."
Here's the latest CBS4 report.
