On March 22, 2012, Dr. Dallas Williams of Milliken, a 73-year-old male who practices medicine at the InHarmony Wellness Center in Windsor, Colorado, and Dr. Joseph Montante of Longmont, a 63-year- old male who practices medicine at the Dr. Green Blossom Wellness Center in Loveland, Colorado, were arrested by the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office for investigation of Attempting to Influence a Public Servant, a class four felony.
These arrests were based on an undercover investigation involving members of the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Impact Unit, investigators from the North Metro Drug Task Force, and the Colorado Attorney General’s Office.
This investigation was initiated after investigators received information that both doctors were issuing medical marijuana recommendations to clients with knowledge that the clients did not suffer from a “debilitating medical condition.” Colorado law limits the use of medical marijuana to those who suffer from legally defined “debilitating medical conditions.” Based on this information, undercover investigators initiated contact with both doctors and were able to obtain recommendations for medical marijuana after clearly stating they had no debilitating medical conditions which would authorize them to obtain medical marijuana.
Arrest warrants were issued for both doctors based on this investigation. Dr. Dallas Williams and Dr. Joseph Montante were arrested, booked at the Larimer County Jail and later released after posting $3,500.00 personal recognizance bonds.
This case has been turned over to the Larimer County District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.
The charge(s) are merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
No additional information will be released.
