WELCOME TO COLORADO
As a resident of Colorado, I have seen the growth and evolution of the cannabis culture in the state firsthand. Since the legalization of recreational marijuana in 2012, the cannabis industry has been thriving in Colorado. Dispensaries have become a staple in many cities and towns, making it easy for residents and tourists alike to access quality cannabis products.
One of the things that sets Colorado apart from other states with legalized cannabis is the level of support for local, small businesses. From cultivators and product manufacturers to dispensary owners and budtenders, the cannabis industry in Colorado is full of hard-working individuals who are passionate about all things green. This has resulted in a vibrant, diverse cannabis community that celebrates the plant in all its forms.
The recreational use of marijuana is a big part of the culture in Colorado, with plenty of opportunities for residents and visitors to participate. From outdoor festivals and events to indoor lounges and tasting rooms, there's something for everyone in the Centennial State's thriving cannabis scene. Whether you're a seasoned smoker or a curious first-timer, Colorado is the place to be for anyone looking to explore the world of marijuana.
Can I use cannabis?
You must be 21 years of age or older to purchase cannabis for recreation in the great state of California. If buying for medical reasons you need to be 18 with a doctor’s say so.
Where can I use cannabis?
Like most states that allow adult use, there are some strict boundaries on what is and is not legal when it comes to cannabis consumption. You are perfectly safe to consume cannabis in a private residence, given that permission has been given to you by the homeowner. Some hotels and AirBNBs are fine with vaping, but may not allow smoking of anything inside, so check with your lodging when you book. Honesty is the best policy.
Now onto the don’ts.
It is 100% illegal to consume cannabis in public in ANY way - including smoking, vaping, dabbing, and eating. It is even illegal to OPEN anything containing a cannabis product in public. No sniffing that bud! Public in this case includes parks, streets, sidewalks, businesses, eateries …anywhere that isn’t a private space, out of view of passersby. You can’t smoke it in a bar, you can’t smoke it in a car. Most hotels don’t allow smoking in the rooms, you can’t consume in restaurants - or anywhere else that smoking is illegal. And do NOT even think about taking or consuming that cannabis in a National Park, those remain Federal Land and cannabis is always illegal on Federal Land.
How much cannabis can I legally have?
You can only take home up to 28.5 grams of flower and up to 8 grams of concentrated cannabis from a dispensary at a time because those are the legal limits an adult can possess.
Can I grow cannabis?
You may grow up to 6 plants at a time. However, some City and County rules may require you to only grow indoors, so check your local laws before you put those seeds in any dirt.
