Pot is Now Legal in Colorado – Governor Makes It Official

It is now legal for Coloradans 21 years and up to possess under an ounce of marijuana. Governor Hickenlooper signed a proclamation yesterday making Amendment 64 part of the state’s constitution, but don’t expect people to run around public smoking pot.  That is still illegal.

The amendment, approved by voters in November, allows for the recreational use and possession of marijuana by adults 21 and over in Colorado. However, Licenses for marijuana distribution won’t begin until October of 2013.

Public use of marijuana will not be permitted under Amendment 64, and municipalities will be allowed to opt out of licensing marijuana sales should they choose to do so…and don’t forget Federal Law still prohibits the use of marijuana. We will see how that shakes out.
