Legal Topics

As an MMJ cardholder in Colorado, you can possess up to 2 oz of marijuana. Recreational users can only carry 1 oz.

Recreational cannabis use is legal in Colorado. Recreational users must be at least 21 and can only possess up to 1 oz of marijuana (half as much as medical patients).

A patient can grow up to 12 plants per household. If patients register with the state, they may be able to grow up to 24 plants with a physician’s recommendation. Cultivating caregivers are determined by your local municipality, so we recommend you contact them directly to confirm how many plants you can grow at once.

Recreational users can cultivate up to six plants at once, with a maximum of three mature.

Telemedicine consultations are not currently allowed in Colorado.


There are four caregiver types in Colorado:

  • Cultivating
  • Transporting
  • Parents of a minor patient
  • Advising

Patients must put the caregiver registration ID and plant and ounce count on their application. Once completed, the caregiver needs to accept the pending request within their caregiver account.


Colorado does not offer reciprocity for out-of-state medical cannabis patients. However, patients 21 or older can purchase cannabis products from recreational dispensaries.

If you’re a Colorado medical cannabis cardholder traveling outside of the state, the following states and U.S. territories do have medical cannabis reciprocity laws and may accept your card:

States marked with * require visitors to complete a visiting patient application for their stay.

States marked with ^ have legalized cannabis for adult use but do not accept out-of-state medical cards.
