On January 1, 2014, Colorado became the first state to approve the legalized distribution on marijuana for recreational use. Prior to this time, Colorado allowed the legal sale of marijuana for medical purposes.
A few rules you should be aware of before purchasing:
- It is illegal to consume marijuana in public
- It is illegal to take marijuana out of the state
- You must be 21 or older to have or use retail marijuana
- Colorado residents may purchase up to 1 ounce of marijuana per day. Out-of-state residents may purchase up to 1/4 ounce per day.
