About this site
The purpose of this website is to educate Colorado residents and visitors about safe, legal and responsible marijuana use by providing current and researched information on marijuana laws and health effects from all of the state agencies. Since Colorado voters legalized marijuana, these agencies work together to implement the will of the people while protecting public health and safety.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment manages this site on behalf of the Office of the Governor and in partnership with a broad team of Colorado state agencies and partners.
We encourage you to visit the following sites for more information about each agency:
Colorado Governor’s Office of Marijuana Coordination, responsible for state- level collaboration and oversight to responsibly implement Amendment 64.
Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, responsible for the Medical Marijuana Registry, funding medical marijuana research, monitoring health effects and retail marijuana trends in data, and providing resources to educate the public
In addition to state agencies, it’s important to connect with your local government to learn more about how marijuana laws differ in each county or town.
