Colorado's Board of Health is nearing a decision on rules clarifying what's a "bona fide" doctor-patient relationship in an effort to crack down on marijuana mills, in which unscrupulous "pot docs" recommend pot for patients they've never seen before. Colorado's proposed regulations would be among the nation's most detailed governing how well doctors recommending marijuana must know their patients, but some marijuana advocates are fighting the rules.

Some Sierra Vista residents are not too high on a proposed medical marijuana facility.
A group trying to establish a dispensary in southern Arizona met with the community Thursday night to gauge how residents feel about a medical pot dispensary in Cochise County.
Some Vista View residents say they strongly oppose it and are even willing to picket if one comes to their neighborhood.
A group trying to open a medical marijuana dispensary tells the Sierra Vista Herald they plan to make it secure, low key and operated in a professional manner.
Despite those assurances some residents still expressed overwhelming opposition.
