Helping You Make Sense Of New Pot Laws
Colorado voters’ approval of Amendment 64 in 2012 is beneficial to adults who want to partake in the recreational consumption of small amounts of marijuana. However, there is still confusion as to what exactly is legal. If you are older than 21, you are permitted to grow up to six marijuana plants in your home. You may also carry up to 1 ounce with you while you are traveling.
The federal government, however, still prohibits the possession of marijuana. That means you could still be subject to federal charges if you are caught with marijuana. The chances of Congress exempting states like Colorado from federal drug laws are slim. Additionally, young adults and teens could still face state charges. If you are younger than 21, it is important to resolve these charges as quickly as possible so they do not haunt you later.
