  1. Robert Chase says:

    Unlike 9News, you fail to report that Meyer is charged with a level 1 drug felony (carrying a minimum mandatory penalty of eight years in State prison) — “possession of marijuana” sounds trivial. CBS4 and other media continue to disserve the public interest by downplaying the severity of Colorado’s laws against cannabis and the increasing number of people charged with felony crimes over cannabis. Between 2013 and 2016, arrests for the production of cannabis increased 144%. The General Assembly and Gov. Hack enacted felonies for cannabis in 2013, 2015, and 2017, but we have yet to hear about it from Colorado’s anti-journalistic media.
