"Denver police cite Lacy Lee for allegedly holding a joint while on a march to legalize marijuana in May 2010. Lee faces a $100 fine, but her attorney Rob Corry (who obtained this video from the Denver Police Department), claims the costs to prosecute Lee (including three officers taking a paid day off the street to appear in court) far outweigh the fine levied against her. Smoking marijuana is legal for medical purposes in Denver. "
Marijuana prosecution of Lacy Lee dropped -- because cops didn't have joint to prove case
"The offense carries a maximum fine of $100. Denver no doubt spent much, much more in the process of arresting Lee and moving the matter through the system. But yesterday, the city dropped the case -- because it had no marijuana on hand to support the charge."
