Welcome to Colorado Medical Marijuana Laws .com

In November of 2000 Coloradans voted on and approved Amendment 20. Shortly after it was approved, and enacted by the people of the state of Colorado. Through the passage of the amendment to the state constitution, medical marijuana can be used as medicine for patients with a qualifying medical condition. A practicing MD in Colorado can recommend marijuana for patients to lessen the debilitating symptoms of a number of serious medical illnesses. Some of these qualifying diseases and conditions include severe nausea, HIV/AIDS, cancer, severe chronic pain, glaucoma, muscle spasticity and muscle spasms (often associated with multiple sclerosis), cachexia (wasting that results from several diseases), seizures (including those related to epilepsy).

A primary caregiver of a patient or a patient can become registered with the state’s Medical Marijuana Registry. Enrollment with the state registry provides patients and/or their primary caregivers with the proper identification credentials that authorize those individuals to possess marijuana for medical use in Colorado. Amendment 20 and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, includes guidelines that legally allows for the possession of “up to and no more than two ounces of a usable form and marijuana and not more than six marijuana plants, with three or fewer being mature, flowering plants that are producing a usable form of (medical) marijuana.”

Although the approval and enactment of Amendment 20 does resolve certain legal issues, governmental guidelines continue to exist that prevent physicians from prescribing medical marijuana to their patients in a formal sense. Rather a Physician will recommend medical marijuana as long as federal law classifies medical marijuana as a Schedule 1 substance. Physicians and Providers are limited to including their signed statement in a patient’s health care file, advising that the use of medical marijuana could prove to be beneficial for alleviating the symptoms of a number of serious medical conditions. Because doctors may not direct patients on where to go acquire medical marijuana, patients and their caregivers have to go about either growing their own or a finding a resource that can help to facilitate access to medical marijuana.
