DENVER (AP) - A Colorado bill to allow medical marijuana use by people on probation or parole is on its way to the governor’s desk.

Colorado has allowed medical marijuana use for 15 years, but not by people on probation or parole. A bill that passed the senate 34-1 Monday would change that policy so those with permission to use marijuana for medical purposes wouldn’t be charged with violating parole or probation.

The bill has already passed in the House.

Legislative analysts who conducted research for the bill didn’t know how many people have been cited for violating parole or probation after failing a marijuana-related drug test.
