Marijuana laws in Colorado can be confusing, so we're here to help

Here in Denver, and all around Colorado, recreational marijuana is only legalized:

  • For personal use *
  • For people 21 years of age and older

There are still instances where marijuana possession or consumption in Colorado are considered illegal.

Personal Use

When it comes to marijuana in Colorado, “personal use” is only defined as one ounce of marijuana or less.

This means that if you have a larger amount of marijuana, grow a large amount, or sell any amount of marijuana at all without proper business licensure, you could be facing criminal charges.

Marijuana Charges in Colorado

Depending on the amount of marijuana you have, you could be charged with a misdemeanor or even a felony. And after a certain amount, drug possession charges could be increased to drug trafficking charges, which come with serious penalties.
