Jim Gerhardt, a sergeant with the North Metro Drug Task Force in Adams and Broomfield counties, said most of the unlicensed grows detectives have busted in his area are in homes. But he said the task force's number of busts "are way down" this year, something he attributed to marijuana legalization. When anyone over 21 can grow up to six plants, it's tougher for police to unravel whether the plants they find are legal or not.

Medical marijuana has been trickling into schools, as students get it illegally from their parents or older friends who have medical marijuana cards, said Jim Gerhardt, a narcotics officer with a Denver-area drug task force.
Also troubling, he has seen cases where children are being neglected or injured because their parents are high on medical marijuana.
Plus, Gerhardt said there have been a few serious car crashes recently in his area in which medical marijuana was involved.
Jerry Peters, executive vice-president of the association, will give the talk along with Gerhardt, a sergeant with the Thornton Police Department and narcotics officer with the North Metro Task Force, an undercover drug enforcement unit for Adams and Broomfield counties in the Denver metro area.
The association has studied the laws extensively and was involved in advising state lawmakers about how to keep "greed and recreational uses out of the equation," Gerhardt said.

"There's nothing about an industry to support the growing, supplying or profiting off medical marijuana," he said.
He also plans to discuss House Bill 1284, a state law that allows local governments to license dispensaries or ban them.

Too often with law enforcement, they're just looking at the legality of the behavior and not how it is affecting the children," said Jim Gerhardt of the Colorado Drug Investigators Association, which supported the bill.
Colorado courts are wading into the question of when adult pot use endangers kids. The state Court of Appeals in 2010 sided with a marijuana-using dad who lost visitation rights though he never used the drug around his daughter.
