4. How do I fight the charges?
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
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. 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.
Coloradans can grow marijuana in their homes for personal use.
