Applicable Laws Regarding Retail/Recreational Marijuana

In November 2012, Colorado voters approved an amendment (Amendment 64) to the state constitution that makes the personal use, possession and limited home-growing of marijuana legal under Colorado law for adults 21 years of age and older. Amendment 64 also required the State to establish a system in which marijuana is regulated and taxed similarly to alcohol.

The possession and use of marijuana remain a crime under federal law. Persons who use marijuana for recreational purposes are subject to criminal prosecution under federal law.
