Anti-Pot Group Files RICO Suit Over Colo.'s Marijuana Law

Colorado's neighbors aren't the only ones upset about the Centennial State's marijuana legalization laws.

Safe Streets Alliance, along with the owners of a Holiday Inn in Frisco, Colorado, are alleging that defendants' plans to open a pot shop next door to the hotel constitutes racketeering.
