A federal judge has denied a request for an injunction against Colorado rules restricting advertising by recreational marijuana shops but says the two publications trying to block the regulations can amend their lawsuit.

The Denver Post reported Monday the judge says High Times and Westword magazines don't have standing to challenge the regulations because they're not the ones affected by them.
The magazines are challenging rules that allow the shops to advertise only in publications expected to no more than 30 percent of its readers under age 21.
The judge says the magazines didn't cite instances where marijuana stores had chosen not to advertise with them because of the rules.
David Lane, an attorney representing the publications, says the lawsuit will be refiled with additional plaintiffs.
