How Can We Help?
WHAT IS THE MINIMUM AGE A CUSTOMER HAS TO BE IN ORDER TO PURCHASE A PRODUCT?
If you are an adult 21 years of age or older, you can now legally possess 1 ounce of marijuana in Colorado. The way the amendment is worded actually allows for possession of 1 ounce of THC. This is great news because, in addition to flower (bud), you can also enjoy many types of concentrates, edibles, topicals, etc. during your visit. Cannabis seeds are also available for sale in Colorado.
As long as you are 21 years or older, you have a constitutional right to possess and consume marijuana in Colorado. You will need a government-issued identification to prove you are 21 years or older, so a driver's license or passport would be sufficient enough. Note that you don't need to be a Colorado resident to possess recreational cannabis and there isn't any type of registration system. Only residents who apply for medical marijuana cards need to register with the state. Medical patients may possess up to 2 ounces, 40 grams of concentrate, or a total of 20,000 mg of infused cannabis product (in the case of edibles or similar preparations).
ARE MY PURCHASES ANONYMOUS?
Despite all that ID checking, recreational customers are entitled to anonymity by law. That means that your dispensary won’t record your name or contact information or divulge it to the government. However, as of January 2018, a new policy obligates dispensary staff to watch for repeat customers who attempt to purchase more than the legal limit in one day.
“If someone came in at 8:30 a.m. and came back at 12:30 p.m. if the state can prove that we should have known that that person was coming through and buying another ounce, that’s our problem,” says Bourget. “The state has access to our cameras for up to 40 days. If they saw that the bud-tender served the customer earlier, and saw them come through later in the day [and didn’t do anything], they could lose their license.”
WHAT IS THE MINIMUM AMOUNT OF PRODUCTS OR FLOWER I CAN BUY EACH VISIT?
As of October 1st, 2016 the following rules took effect in regards to recreational sales (medical sales remain unchanged):
1oz Flower = 8g of Concentrate (Shatter, Wax, etc)
1oz Flower = 800mg of Edibles
