Laws

Medical Marijuana

Colorado Amendment 20
On November 7, 2000, The Colorado Medical Use of Marijuana Initiative, also known as Initiative 20, was on the ballot in Colorado as an initiated constitutional amendment and was approved. This Amendment allowed patients who have a Medical Marijuana Registration Card and their primary caregivers to possess a limited amount of medical marijuana. A limit of two ounces of usable marijuana and no more than six plants was allotted to each.

Colorado House Bill 11-1043
The bill requires cannabis growers to be allowed no more than 500 plants, register their grow site, and identify all patients, in addition to various other regulations for marijuana businesses. A cannabis grower must abide by these rules unless they have a waiver.

Colorado House Bill 10-1284
This bill clarifies the sourcing of medical marijuana by specifying where registered patients can buy medical marijuana. It specifies that a patient can either grow their own, buy it from a state registered primary caregiver, or from a licensed MMJ center.

Colorado Revised Statutes 12-43-3
This code regulates licenses, dispensaries, cultivation facilities, and infused product manufacturers. Pursuant to this code, cities and counties can adopt their own rules and procedures for licensing of MMJ centers. This also allows cities and counties to ban medical marijuana centers completely. However, they are not allowed to ban patients or caregivers.

Colorado Senate Bill 109
Regulates the physician-patient relationship for medical marijuana patients.

Recreational Marijuana

Amendment 64 – The Colorado Marijuana Legalization Amendment, Amendment 64, was on the November 6, 2012 ballot and approved in Colorado.

Denver Initiative 300 (Social Consumption) – Passed by voters in November 2016, the initiative granted businesses the ability to apply for a license to allow adult marijuana consumption in designated areas. NOTE: It is not legal to consume marijuana in public.
