Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 3

Legislation: Marijuana is illegal in Colorado however it is of extremely low priority.

Possession of one ounce or less of marijuana is a petty offense. The offender receives a summons to appear in court, and upon a promise to appear in court, the offender is to be released from detention. The maximum penalty for a violation is $100. Failure to appear at the specified time and location results in the increase of the charges to a misdemeanor. Displaying or using the marijuana in public results in the added penalty of up to 15 days in jail. Possession of greater than one ounce is a misdemeanor, punishable by 6-18 months in jail and a fine of $500 – $5,000, plus a $600 surcharge. Possession of greater than 8 ounces of marijuana is a felony, punishable by 1 – 3 years in prison and a fine of $1,000 – $100,000 and a surcharge of $1,125. Generally, subsequent convictions of possession of over one ounce double the possible penalties.

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: $50 for 1/8

250 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
