Coloradans can grow marijuana in their homes for personal use.

  • Up to six plants are allowed per Colorado resident over age 21, with as many as three plants flowering at one time.

  • Don’t forget that counties and municipalities can pass stricter laws. For example, Denver limits a home grow to 12 plants, even if there are three or more adults over age 21 in the residence.

  • The laws are different for medical marijuana users.

  • Marijuana plants must be kept in an enclosed, locked area that can’t be viewed openly. This means the plants can’t be outside.

    • At homes with residents under 21, any marijuana grow area must be enclosed and locked in a separate space that minors can’t access.

    • At homes without residents under 21, extra precautions must be taken to make sure any visiting youth don’t have access to marijuana plants.

  1. Homegrown marijuana or marijuana products can’t be sold to anyone.

    • Only licensed grow establishments can sell marijuana products.

I hope this helps.
