Frequently Asked Questions

With more and more states making medical marijuana legal every year, and several also legalizing recreational marijuana, there are several frequently asked questions as medical marijuana dispensaries. We will address some of the more common ones asked at Colorado dispensaries, and offer some answers.

Q: Can I make multiple purchases on the same day?

A: Yes. The only cap on how much you can buy is the legal possession limit: Anyone who is not a medical marijuana patient can possess more than an ounce of marijuana at a time. But that’s up to the customer to abide by. The state does not require dispensaries to track customer purchases.

Q: Is there any kind of list of marijuana customers that will be given to the government?

A: No. Amendment 64, which is a constitutional measure, states: “The department shall not require a consumer to provide a retail marijuana store with personal information other than government-issued identification to determine the consumer’s age, and a retail marijuana store shall not be required to acquire and record personal information about consumers other than information typically acquired in a financial transaction conducted at a retail liquor store.”

Q: Is there anything that will show I bought weed at one of the stores?

A: You’ll be on camera. The state’s rules for marijuana stores require the shops to have a security camera pointed at the cash register so that it can record “the customer(s) and employee(s) facial features with sufficient clarity to determine identity.” Stores must also have security cameras recording the entrances and exits.

Q: Can I smoke in public?

A: Public consumption is banned, including public parks, national parks, national forests, national monuments, and ski slopes, many of which are on federal land, where marijuana use and possession is strictly forbidden.

Q: Can I take marijuana with me on a plane?

A: No. Taking marijuana across state lines is illegal, even if you are traveling to another state where marijuana is legal. The same goes for using the U.S. Postal Service to send marijuana through the mail, even from one legal state to another. Marijuana possession is also banned at Denver International Airport.

Q: Is it OK to drive with marijuana in my car?

A: Yes, as long as you are transporting it and not consuming it. Driving stoned is absolutely against the law. The state set a standard of how much THC, the psychoactive chemical in marijuana, drivers can have in their system.

Q: Can I grow my own marijuana at home legally?

A: Yes, if you are 21 or older and only grow up to six plants in an enclosed, locked space. Some cities have a limit to the number of plants that can be grown in a single house, and some cities have imposed other zoning or code restrictions on growing your own marijuana at home. It’s best to check your local laws and city ordinances before growing marijuana at home.
