Colorado State Senator Don Coram accused of using political influence via criminal charges for personal collection benefit
A Republican Colorado state senator, Don Coram, has allegedly used his political influence with the Colorado State Department of Agriculture and the local Montrose County D.A. to get felony criminal charges brought against three Denver businessmen, who ran a publicly traded Cannabis company, for an unpaid purchase of biomass from Coram’s hemp company Paradox Ventures. It’s a landmark case that the cannabis legal community is closely watching.
The Montrose County prosecutors used an old law designed to protect food farmers from businesses that resale, package, or store their products and brought charges against the company, United Cannabis Corp, and its executives for two violations of the farm products small dealer act.
