Tourists In Colorado Can Now Purchase As Much Marijuana As Locals
Colorado Governor, John Hickenlooper, has given final approval and his signature on a routine renewal of the state’s marijuana regulations that included a measure that repeals Colorado’s rule regarding sales to out of state residents.
Before the repeal, non-residents could only purchase up to a quarter-ounce of cannabis at a time. Now, tourists visiting Colorado can purchase, the same amount as a resident, up to an ounce at a time.
Recreational marijuana dispensaries were informed of the news by an industry memo sent out yesterday. The measure went into effect immediately and was a welcome update to Colorado’s cannabis industry.
“A statutory change resulting from the 2016 Legislative Session eliminated the quarter ounce purchase limitation for customers unable to provide identification showing Colorado residency,” MED director Jim Burack wrote in the memo. “Sales transactions to Colorado residents and non-residents are now limited to one ounce. Regulations will be aligned with current statute during the 2016 Rule making Process.”
