DENVER (AP) - A Colorado man who runs 1 of the country's largest medical marijuana companies won't be allowed to use pot for two years because he was arrested for possession of the drug in Alabama.

The Denver Post reported (http://bit.ly/19dp0Ki ) Sunday that Vincent "Tripp" Keber, managing director of Dixie Elixirs, pleaded guilty last month to misdemeanor marijuana possession in Baldwin County, Ala. Martha Simmons, a spokeswoman for the county's district attorney's office, says as part of a plea deal, Keber must check in with Alabama authorities daily and submit to random drug tests.

Keber was arrested with a small amount of concentrated marijuana at a music festival in Gulf Shores, Ala., on May 18. He says he "made an error in judgment."

Unlike Colorado, Alabama doesn't have a medical marijuana law. Keber's company produces marijuana-infused products.
