Currently, edibles that are available to MMJ Patients have anywhere from 5 - 400 milligrams of active THC. This is just one of many good reasons to renew your MMJ Card.
Q: Can I legally smoke or consume any marijuana product in public?
A: NO! In the state of Colorado, marijuana is now regulated similarly to alcohol. Under Amendment 64, anyone over the age of 21 may possess one ounce or less without penalty. However, any open and public display of marijuana or the use or possession of between one and two ounces of marijuana is a petty offense resulting in up to 15 days incarceration and a maximum fine of $100. Possession of paraphernalia is also a petty offense with a maximum fine of $100. Check out this and more information on marijuana laws and penalties in Colorado at the link below:
Q: Where can I consume marijuana legally?
A: You may legally consume on private property as long as it is not prohibited by the property owner. The open and public consumption of marijuana on public property including BLM, Forest Service, National and State Park Land is prohibitedby law as is the consumption of marijuana within any place of business. That means that it is illegal to smoke while on a hike up Tenderfoot Mountain or while watching music at a local bar.
Q: Can I purchase marijuana from a friend?
A: No. It is illegal to sell any amount of marijuana if you are not a state-licensed Retail Marijuana Establishment.
Q: Do you have any free products or giveaways?
A: No. Colorado State Law regulates that no Retail Marijuana Dispensaries can offer any free products.
Q: What are the taxes on Retail Marijuana?
A: This November, Colorado voters passed Proposition AA, authorizing a 15 percent excise tax and a special sales tax of 10 percent on marijuana products sold by state-licensed stores. This is a 25% cap on Retail Marijuana taxes, it does not mean that the taxes will actually be this high. The actual tax amount will be determined by each individual county and have not yet been determined for Chaffee County.
