Medical marijuana patients can ask the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment for an extended plant count.
Each cultivation facility is assigned a different tier depending on the number of plants it has:
The wait time to seal criminal records in Colorado depends on the type of conviction.
6. How soon can the criminal record be sealed?
If a person under 21 lives in the home, the area where the marijuana is grown must itself be enclosed and locked. And if a person under 21 enters the home, access to the homegrown marijuana must be reasonably restricted from him or her. 1
8. Are grow houses legal in Colorado?
A common defense to marijuana cultivation charges is that the police found the plants through an illegal search and seizure. If the defense attorney can show the judge that law enforcement violated the defendant’s Fourth Amendment rights, then the judge may suppress all evidence of the plants. And this may leave the D.A. with too little evidence to prosecute.
And home growers may not keep more than 12 marijuana plants in their residence, even if more than two adults live there.
At homes with residents under 21, any marijuana grow area must be enclosed and locked in a separate space that minors can’t access.
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. Be sure to check your local laws for specific details.
Marijuana plants must be kept in an enclosed, locked area that can’t be viewed openly. This means the plants can’t be outside.
Up to six plants are allowed per Colorado resident over age 21, with as many as three plants flowering at one time.
The laws are different for medical marijuana consumers.
Coloradans can grow marijuana in their homes for personal use.
At homes without residents under 21, extra precautions must be taken to make sure any visiting youth don’t have access to marijuana plants.
