Authorities say Colorado a major exporter of pot

DENVER - Authorities say Colorado is becoming a major exporter of illegally grown marijuana to the rest of the country.

The Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area, a network of law enforcement organizations in four western states that share information on drug-running patterns, say there were at least 270 highway seizures of marijuana last year that investigators linked to Colorado.

The Denver Post reports some of the marijuana was diverted from medical-marijuana dispensaries.
