In order to purchase, possess or use retail marijuana, you must have a valid ID proving you’re 21 or older. It’s that simple.
Using marijuana in any form (smoking, eating or vaping) isn’t allowed in public places, including amusement parks, ski resorts, sporting and music venues, state and national parks, campsites, playgrounds, sidewalks and roads, marijuana retail businesses, bars, restaurants and outdoor or rooftop cafes. So where can you use it? Marijuana use is legal within the confines of private property. Just keep in mind that property owners, landlords, and rental companies can ban the use and possession of marijuana on their premises.
Marijuana is legal by state of Colorado law. Federally? Not so much. If you’re on federal land, such as a national park or a national forest, you can’t even have it in your possession.
It’s illegal to leave Colorado with any marijuana products. Additionally, Denver International Airport has banned the possession of marijuana products on its property.
It’s illegal to drive under the influence of marijuana. If you get caught, you could be charged with a DUI. By law, you can’t drive if you have five nanograms or more of THC in your system. As a rule of thumb, if you’re smoking, wait at least six hours before driving. If you’re ingesting, wait at least eight.
If you have marijuana in your car, make sure it’s sealed and unused. It’s illegal to open and use any marijuana in a vehicle. That goes for both the passenger and the driver. Stay legal and safe—keep it sealed.
Adults over the age of 21 can purchase up to one ounce of marijuana per day. Adults can have up to two ounces of marijuana in their possession at any time.
Licensed retail locations are the only legal place to purchase marijuana. It is illegal for any individual to buy or sell marijuana without a state and local marijuana business license.
Coloradans can grow marijuana in their homes for personal use. Up to six plants are allowed per Colorado resident over age 21, with as many as three plants flowering at one time. Plants must be grown in a secure, locked location, not in a yard. Counties and municipalities can pass stricter laws. Check your local laws for specific details.
Patients with qualifying debilitating medical conditions can receive a registry identification card for legal access to medical marijuana. Cards are available to Colorado residents and are valid only in Colorado. Colorado medical dispensaries cannot accept medical marijuana cards from other states. See our medical dispensary, Colorado Alternative Health Care, for more information.
It’s a felony to give or share retail marijuana with someone younger than 21 years old. This includes family members and friends.
There is no known safe amount of marijuana use while pregnant or breastfeeding. Speak with your doctor before using cannabis.
