The Status of Cannabis Legalization in Colorado
The Colorado Marijuana Legalization Amendment, also known as Amendment 64, was approved by voters on November 6, 2012, passing with 55.3% of the vote. Amendment 64 legalized recreational cannabis for adults 21 and older, and established sales and cultivation taxes. Before approval of Amendment 64, the possession or use of cannabis was reserved for qualifying patients and their caregivers.
Adults 21 and older may possess up to one ounce (1 oz), or 28.5 grams, of dry cannabis or cannabis-infused products, and 8 grams of marijuana concentrates. Qualifying patients and their caregivers may legally possess up to two ounces (2 oz), or 57 grams, of usable cannabis. Adults, qualifying patients and their caregivers may each grow or possess a maximum of six (6) plants, with three (3) plants in the flowering stage, and a total of 12 plants on a residential property.
The Colorado Medical Marijuana Registry is a statewide program that allows patients with qualifying medical conditions to receive a registry ID card for legal access to medical marijuana. Registry ID cards are available to Colorado residents only, and must be renewed yearly. The Colorado Medical Marijuana Registry established a state-authorized ID card, along with an online database used to tack and verify qualified patients and their designated caregivers. Patients and caregivers must each apply for a card for a registry card themselves. Minors must apply with a parent or legal guardian and must designate two caregivers.
