Colorado couple threatens to sue cops for letting marijuana plants go to pot

FORT COLLINS, Colorado - A Colorado couple whose medical-marijuana plants were seized are threatening to sue authorities because the plants were returned dead.

Lawyer Brian Vicente says police seized 39 live marijuana plants from Jim and Lisa Masters in August 2006 and arrested them on drug charges.

The couple say they were using the plants for medical purposes and providing marijuana to several patients who were licensed to get it.

The narcotics charges against the Masters were dropped in June and the plants were returned to them Monday but dead.

The couple's lawyers say the plants might be worth more than 100 thousand dollars.

Police spokeswoman Rita Davis says the department didn't have to care for the plants because the couple did not have documentation to show the plants were legal.

Two things come to mind.

1. Chutzpah

2. The legal term "fruit of the poison tree"

I don't know, convicted drug dealers used to ask the Judge all the time, to get back the money seized from the drug raids when they got arrested.

They got told to file a "motion for the return of property". The Judges would eventually take a look at it, just like with the cases for guns that were seized.

Since it was San Francisco, with the seized guns, they were all destroyed, but off the record, where nobody was around, actually right at the moment before the guns were destroyed, certain favored SFPD cops got to take a look at all of then, and cherry pick a few really good ones to keep for themselves, if they wanted them.

Of course, ON the record, they would deny that this ever happened.
