Colorado's New, Improved MMJ Rules Start in November  2019

The rules for Colorado's expansive new medical marijuana laws have been approved by the State Board of Health.  Mandated by a set of bills passed by the Colorado Legislature during the 2019 session, the rules received some minor technical tweaks during their implementation period over the summer, and were officially approved by the Board of Health on September 18, 2019. They will go into effect on November 14, 2019, according to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

The new rules include allowing doctors, dentists (and some nurses) and certain medical professionals with prescribing power and a "valid license to practice within his or her scope of practice" to recommend medical marijuana. Two more laws will also give doctors the right to recommend medical marijuana for autism spectrum disorder, as well as any condition that qualifies for opioid medications. The new medical marijuana cards for opioid-related conditions would be valid for up to sixty days instead of the standard one year that patients with other conditions currently see.


Colorado Revised Statutes 18-18-406.3: Medical use of marijuana by persons diagnosed with debilitating medical conditions — unlawful acts — penalty — medical marijuana program cash fund.

Colorado Revised Statute 25-1.5-106: Medical marijuana program — powers and duties of department.


Two ounces of usable marijuana.


Patients (or their primary caregivers) may cultivate no more than six marijuana plants, with three or fewer being mature, flowering plants that are producing a usable form of marijuana.

There are two ways to obtain legal marijuana in Colorado, medically and recreationally. There is no difference in quality or general characteristics between medical and recreational products.  The only real difference in actuality is what your goal is, whether for medicine, such as pain relief, or for fun (or both). You could find similar strains and products in each store, though recreational stores tend to stock products that are higher in THC. Medical dispensaries, however, do not have the 100 milligram THC limit per package of edible. And medical and recreational weed is taxed differently. Each dispensary sale comes with a 2.9 percent state sales tax plus local sales tax (which varies). Recreational sales include state and local sales taxes along with a 10 percent retail marijuana tax.

If you go the medical route, you must have one of the qualifying medical marijuana conditions for Colorado and visit a licensed physician. It may be that it fits nicely into your overall health plan. Once you get your certification, you join the Colorado Medical Marijuana Registry, which is now all online. When visiting a dispensary, you need to have your certification with you at all times.  For both medical and recreational visits, you must have a valid government-issued ID and be age 21 or over for admittance.
