Denver, CO, Colorado

Denver Marijuana Guide

Laws and Regulations

Colorado has passed Amendment 64 which allows possession of up to 1 ounce per adult 21 years or older. CO Residents can buy up to an ounce per purchase. Non-residents can buy up to a quarter ounce per purchase.

You may give to or trade marijuana with any adult, but you may not sell it to them. That means you’re allowed to trade your Sour Diesel with your friend’s Blue Dream, but you can’t take cash for marijuana.

You MAY NOT take any marijuana products out of the state.

It’s not legal to smoke in public. It’s a fineable offense. With that being said, most people and most cops generally won’t hassle you if you’re not being an asshole about it. Go find somewhere secluded if you want to smoke outside. Like the top of a mountain, for a start.

You can be charged with having an open container of marijuana in your car. It needs to be in a sealed container anywhere that is not accessible to the driver. The trunk is the best place to store your weed at all times.

Marijuana possession has been banned in the Denver Airport, and is still technically illegal in National Parks under federal law. State and local parks are still okay. Public transportation is okay also.

It is legal to ‘display’ marijuana in public spaces, meaning that you’re allowed to walk around town holding a bag of weed above your head, singing “BAG OF WEED, BAG OF WEED, EVERYTHING IS BETTER WITH A BAG OF WEED”

Where can I buy marijuana in Colorado?

Weedmaps.com is by far the best resource for finding dispensaries. Take a look at their map, click on a dispensary, and take a look at their menu and pricing. The prices are currently hovering around $350-$400 / ounce plus about 30% tax.

Craigslist is still a resource for cheaper black-market weed. Legally, the buyer is at no risk since it isn’t illegal to purchase marijuana, however buy at your own risk because these are not licensed dispensaries. Of course we all would prefer that you pay tax in the recreational dispensaries, though.

Neat shit to do

Weekly event listings in Denver (thanks to /u/rDenverPosts[7] )
Illusionz Glass Gallery is a top-of-the-line headshop that contains pipes and bongs that are described better as works of art, including this giant, fully smokeable motherfuckin pirate ship[8] selling for like $30,000. Complete with chillum cannons. On every 1st Friday of the month and on 4/20 they have a free live glass-blowing demonstration with a few kegs and a smokeout tent out back for anyone 21+. Definitely worth checking out, if nothing else just to get baked out back and see all the glass.

Smoking Clubs and Lounges, such as iBake Lounge in Denver[9] , or Speak Easy Vape Lounge in Colorado Springs[10]

Go hiking! The mountains are super close, and are absolutely beautiful all year round. Denver is just another big city, for the most part, so it would be a huge shame if you came all the way out here and didn’t enjoy the natural beauty of our state. Make sure to take all your trash (including your roaches!) with you, because we Coloradoans love our open spaces and want to keep them clean. Blazing up at the top of a mountain with a few good friends is definitely a moment you can’t put a price tag on. SO DO IT!

Red Rocks[11] is a must-see. It is widely regarded as the greatest and one of the most beautiful concert venues in the world. During the day it is a city park with lots of great hiking, beautiful scenery, interesting geology and a pretty sweet museum. Even the amphitheater is open to the public during the day, which is hella cool because you can walk around the stage that so many super famous people have played on. If you get a chance to see any concert, DO IT. I’m honored to live so close to such a legendary place. The concerts are also mostly tree-friendly, as long as you’re not doing it right in front of security.

Boulder is a nearby college town right on the front range of the Rockies. Almost anywhere in town you have a sweet view of the mountains. In fact, you can hike straight into the mountains from downtown. It is my home, and I love every minute of living here.

Skiing/Snowboarding is of course what Colorado is most famous for. Some favorite spots are: Vail, Arapahoe Basin, Loveland, Keystone and Winter Park

Other neat shit to do[12] – Scroll down to “See” and “Do”.

Neat shit to do on 4/20

Civic Center Park 4/20 Rally[13] – Ever have the urge to smoke with tens of thousands of other people in front of the state capital and a bunch of cops? Go here. It’s widely considered the largest smokeout in the world, and it’s free and open to the public. The cops will give out MIPs, so only go if you’re 21+. Hopefully we don’t get any assholes shooting people this year…

The High Times Cannabis Cup[14] – A world-famous competition to find the best marijuana, edibles, and concentrates. It’s essentially a trade-show for cannabis vendors. Event-goers last year waited in line to get free dabs and bong rips from the different booths. There’s a smokeout at 4:20 on 4/20, but is much smaller than the one in Civic Center Park. Want a local’s suggestion? Leave the Cup at around 3:30, go to Civic Center for 4:20, then go back to the Cup if you so desire. You won’t regret it. Last year’s Cup had reports of overcrowding, but this year’s event is at the Denver Mart, a much larger venue.

Food and Beer

You’re in a different place, so don’t get the same shit you could get at home. Hit up some good local restaurants and breweries, because Colorado is home to some outstanding craft beers. If whiskey is your thing, we also have a great craft whiskey market.

Lucille’s[15] – Seriously the dankest breakfast I’ve ever had in my life. Their homemade sausage is the best.
Snooze[16] – This get’s the silver medal for breakfasts. Locations in Denver and Boulder.
Vine St. Pub[17] – Good burgers and a great selection of craft beers. My favorite is the Vagabond IPA. Locations in Denver and Boulder.
Falling Rock Taphouse[18] – The bar is meh, but they’ve also got a great selection of beers and is right in the middle of downtown.
Casa Bonita[19] – The same Casa Bonita featured in the South Park episode. Shitty cafeteria food, bad acting, mediocre cliff divers, but still worth the experience.
A more detailed list of local restaurants can be found in the /r/Denver FAQ[20]

Other Tips

Altitude sickness sucks. At a mile high in Denver, you may have trouble catching your breath and a slight, persistent headache. At higher altitudes, say if you’re going into the mountains, you may feel dizzy and nauseous. Drink lots of water and if you’re really not feeling well, pick up some Diamox from the drug store.
Even if it’s warm during the day, it usually gets really cold when the sun goes down even during the summer. Always have a jacket with you if you’re planning on being out past sundown.

Not in a smoking room? Don’t know where to smoke? Ask the hotel front desk. They’ve been asked the question hundreds of times before, so no need to be embarrassed. They will tell you where the safest place to smoke is.

Buy a cheap pipe that you won’t mind throwing away, because you can’t take a used pipe out of the state. Support the local glassblowers.

Watch how much you drink and smoke. The altitude does funny things to your body and you will get drunker much quicker. The first night I moved here, I went to the bars and was hammered after just a few beers. The altitude doesn’t affect how high you get, though, but be careful because you’re smoking some of the best bud that the world has to offer.

Like anywhere else, you get what you pay for here in Colorado. If you buy weed on the cheap side, don’t be surprised if it isn’t dried and cured properly. While you’re here, spring for the top-shelf buds. You’re not obligated to buy anything if you’re not impressed with the quality.

If you’re coming for 4/20, note that the big 4/20 smokeout on the CU Boulder campus has been stamped out by CU Administration and the local police. You will be escorted off campus if you don’t have a CU student ID on 4/20.

We Coloradoans cherish our parks and open spaces. Littering really rustles our jimmies.
We’re also quite flammable, so don’t flick your cigarettes or roaches.

Steamboat Springs, Colorado

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 5

Legislation: Colorado has passed Amendment 64 which allows people 21 and over to possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana. Currently state and counties are working out legislation behind the opening of public pot shops. Colorado also continues to be a medical marijuana state and dispensaries are in every town.

Where to buy marijuana: Marijuana in Steamboat Springs is plenty full, what u should no is that there is probably more marijuana in the boat then there is in most large us cities, so if the first person you ask cant or more likely than cant, isn’t willing to help you out just ask the next person you think that is likely to toke up. Who to ask? In my opinion i would ask pretty much anyone that looks and acts like a local around the STEAMBOAT SKI AREA, also as in any town finding and asking the stereotypical stoner is always a good way to go(funny how stereotype are usually right) in my opinion younger people are more likely to help you out but any Colorado Mountain College kids will more than likely try to make you pay 60 and or rip you off, especially if they think you are from out of town. Where to go? I would say that the terrain park on the mountain is probably going to be your best bet for a quick find because pretty much anyone who skis and is any good also tokes up on a regular basis, if you ask around and don’t find anyone with some dank on them in the park more than likely if you just offer to smoke them up pretty much anyone that can will be willing to help you out.(as long as your not a sketchball or look like a DEA agent) I would also check around the local subway/coldstone where there is likely to be some dealers hanging out on the tables outside or inside the store.

Marijuana prices: $25-35 1/8oz of DANK

$50-80 1/4 oz of DANK

$100-150 1/2 oz of Dank

$200-250 1 oz of Dank

If you are looking for quantity and are from out of town you probably won’t find anyone willing to sell you a qp or more without knowing a local or unless you are obviously not a bitch working with the DEA and can convince them you are straight.

Don’t no about beasters due to the fact that i have lived here for 2years and i have never seen nor heard of any beasters, only headies in steamboat!!

Marijuana brands: Dealers really don’t no what they are talking about when they give buds a name, most of the time it is just some bull shit name that they came up with to try to sell there plant or make it seem better than it is. Anything you find should be the dankity dank and most people carry more than one type of buds, a good dealer in Steamboat will at least have 3 types of different headies, If they try to tell you the names to help you with your decision would just tell them you want to look at it to decide because they more than likely just made up the names.

More information: Steamboat is a cool town, great skiing, great hiking, great back country(BUFF PASS only 12miles from Steamboat gets the most snow of any point in Colorado over 600inches of dry fluffy snow each year, Almost but not quite equal to the dry fluffy quality of snow in Utah and Jackson Whole although the resort and some locals who do not know what they talking about try to talk it up saying there “champaign powder” is the best in the world, and most important to this site a amazing standard of quality of the marijuana here due to people dropping off from California on the way to the east and our close proximity to DENVER where marijuana is completely legal!!!! woohoo!!

 

Monument, Colorado

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 5

Legislation: Colorado has passed Amendment 64 which allows people 21 and over to possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana. Currently state and counties are working out legislation behind the opening of public pot shops. Colorado also continues to be a medical marijuana state and dispensaries are in every town.

Law enforcement: Police usually aren’t out looking for smokers. Obviously you don’t wanna light one up in the open with cops around, but in relatively private areas you’ll be fine. Most of the cops here will probably take your bud and smoke it themselves. Just take the same precautions as you would anywhere else. Stay low-key and you’ll be good to go. Monument is close to larger cities like Colorado Springs and Denver, but is probably more conservative due to the fact that it’s a small town.

Where to buy marijuana: Your best bet is to look around local attractions such as safeway, 7-11, or the skatepark. There are always smokers there, and 75% of above 18ers in Monument smoke.

Marijuana prices: Pretty standard prices: 10 a gram, 25 an eighth, 50 a quad, etc.

Usually some anonymous danks, can get ultra-dank name brands though

Marijuana brands: Have seen some good name brands (mostly diverted medical) going around lately. (sour diesel, trainwreck, orange kush, etc.)

More information: Monument is a small to medium-sized town between Colorado Springs and Denver, so chances are the weed you’re getting comes from one of those places.

 

Grand Junction, CO, Colorado

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 5

Legislation: Colorado has passed Amendment 64 which allows people 21 and over to possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana. Currently state and counties are working out legislation behind the opening of public pot shops. Colorado also continues to be a medical marijuana state and dispensaries are in every town.

Law enforcement: Depends on the cop, if its a hick you might be screwed. But a lot of the cops won’t really bust you for just possesion.

Where to buy marijuana: You basically have to know someone and if you don’t you’ll be pretty hard pressed to find any especially anything but schwag. If you’re really desperate you could try and find a mexican that looks like he sells down in the riverside neighborhood.

Marijuana prices: generally about 25 for an 8th and so on up.

Marijuana brands: A lot of great homegrown weed, with some good cali bud coming into town from time to time.

Greeley, CO, Colorado

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 5

Legislation: Colorado has passed Amendment 64 which allows people 21 and over to possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana. Currently state and counties are working out legislation behind the opening of public pot shops. Colorado also continues to be a medical marijuana state and dispensaries are in every town.

Law enforcement: Police enforcement is ten times harder on alcohol charges than they are with pot. Possesion of an ounce or less is a court appearance and a $100 fine. Pipes and other paraphanalia are almost always confiscated if they are found. Any scale visible will lead to an intent to sell charge.

Where to buy marijuana: You have to have a dealer you trust and it’s always best to meet a new dealer through someone you know. Most in-home dealers are chill and won’t give any trouble. A few around act sketch and won’t measure in front of clients, if that’s the case you should find someone else.

Marijuana prices: 25 an 1/8

Gunnison – Crested Butte, CO, Colorado

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 5

Legislation: Colorado has passed Amendment 64 which allows people 21 and over to possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana. Currently state and counties are working out legislation behind the opening of public pot shops. Colorado also continues to be a medical marijuana state and dispensaries are in every town.

Law enforcement: You can feel free to puff outside as long, you may get some looks if you are being blatant about it. Cops are chill and kinda rare.

Where to buy marijuana: Western State College is probably your first bet. There are tons of students on campus dealing, and if they don’t they have a buddy who they are willing to help out by selling a sack for them. Pretty much hang out by the skate park or just walk around and look for some hoobie hippy and they will help you out. Same if you are looking for bud in Crested Butte, its pretty much a ski town so the pot is there just ask someone walking around who looks cool and they can hook you up and you can possibly get more than pot… local acid, mushrooms, dmt?

Marijuana prices: standard prices for dank bud 30/8th, 50 quarter if you know the right guy a oz around 200 towards the end of the year there might be so many people dealing that you could find a 25 dollar 8th, but quality MIGHT come down a bit.

Marijuana brands: most bud either comes down from the denver metro area, cali or rumors are that pot is being grown in almont, (between Gunnison and Crested Butte) But the dank bud is here

Legislation: Colorado has passed Amendment 64 which allows people 21 and over to possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana. Currently state and counties are working out legislation behind the opening of public pot shops. Colorado also continues to be a medical marijuana state and dispensaries are in every town.

Law enforcement: Fort Collins not only has the city police but Colorado State University police as well. You need to be careful smoking around campus but most of the time if your in a park just be discreet and you will be fine.

Where to buy marijuana: You need to know someone most people are sketch about selling on the street here.

Marijuana prices: 25$ Eighth

Evergreen, CO, Colorado

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 5

Legislation: Colorado has passed Amendment 64 which allows people 21 and over to possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana. Currently state and counties are working out legislation behind the opening of public pot shops. Colorado also continues to be a medical marijuana state and dispensaries are in every town.

Law enforcement: Police are few and far apart. You will probably see a few in a large SUV pass you on Highway 73 but they are looking for speeders on the mountain roads. If you are inside, you are basically free to do whatever you want since most houses are spread apart more then in suburbs and urban places.

Where to buy marijuana: You need to know someone. There is no street selling to speak of.

Marijuana prices: $25 for 1/8

200 for an ounce…

If you buy from a kid, it will be a lot more expensive because those richies are looking to make a quick buck.

Marijuana brands: Anything that comes around

 

Federal Heights, CO, Colorado

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 5

Legislation: Colorado has passed Amendment 64 which allows people 21 and over to possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana. Currently state and counties are working out legislation behind the opening of public pot shops. Colorado also continues to be a medical marijuana state and dispensaries are in every town.

Law Enforcement: Eventhough Denver passed the law allowing persons 21 or older to posses up to an ounce of marijuana for personal use, the Denver PD is still giving out tickets for minor possesion of less than an ounce. Most officers are deceant guys and willing to work with you regarding the matter.

Where to buy marijuana in Federal Heights: Only way to get the good bud in Colorado is to have a connection to a grower. There are definately plenty of them here. You can find schwag just about anywhere you go, but I’d suggest finding someone reliable to purchase homegrown. I myself haven’t smoked schwag in over 5 years.

Brands:

Dynamite

AK-47

Hawaiian

Bubble Gum

Jack Herer

Federal Heights Marijuana Prices: You know the grower, you get the better deal, you don’t know one, then you’ll pay the price. $300 on ounce if you know one, $400+ if you don’t.

More Info.: Colorado is quite open regarding marijuana use. Hopefully this November we’ll be able to get Amendment 44 passed and allow all the state to possess. We do have the Medical Marijuana Law, and the only state that the Medical Law says that if you use more marijuana than the 6 plants will provide, and with your doctors permission, you may grow what you use.
