“Colorado has had a medical marijuana law since June, 2001: ” Fifty-four percent of voters approved Amendment 20 on November 7, 2000, which amends the state’s constitution to recognize the medical use of marijuana. The law took effect on June 1, 2001. It removes state-level criminal penalties on the use, possession and cultivation of marijuana by patients who possess written documentation from their physician affirming that he or she suffers from a debilitating condition and advising that they “might benefit from the medical use of marijuana.” (Patients must possess this documentation prior to an arrest.) Patients diagnosed with the following illnesses are afforded legal protection under this act: cachexia; cancer; chronic pain; chronic nervous system disorders; epilepsy and other disorders characterized by seizures; glaucoma; HIV or AIDS; multiple sclerosis and other disorders characterized by muscle spasticity; and nausea. Other conditions are subject
to approval by the Colorado Board of Health. Patients (or their primary caregivers) may legally possess no more than two ounces of usable marijuana, and may cultivate no more than six marijuana plants. The law establishes a confidential state-run patient registry that issues identification cards to qualifying patients. Patients who do not join the registry or possess greater amounts of marijuana than allowed by law may argue the “affirmative defense of medical necessity” if they are arrested on marijuana charges. To date, approximately 1200 cards have been issues to registered patients.
Law enforcement: The cops in steamboat are overall pretty chill about marijuana, most of them understand that it is a completely harmless drug that has never hurt anyone nor has the possibility to hurt anyone(besides ruining there lives with ridiculous charges for non violent crimes like having a plant in there closet) . The cops in this town are way more concerned about underage drinking, and public intoxication, due to the fact they make way more money off of those citations then the 100 dollars they can make off of a marijuana possession ticket. Be careful driving in steamboat though the cops are always on the look for a reason to pull you due to the massive amounts of drunk drivers that are constantly endangering our lives. A popular saying in steamboat is that “no matter how long you have lived here you are not considered a local until you have got at least one DUI” so be careful. If you get a dick young cop then they might wright you up with a 100 dollar ticket which is a petty offense that does not even go on your permanent record, as long as you pay the fine. Overall simple possession is going to cause you way less trouble and money then a speeding ticket.
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: $40-50 1/8oz of DANK
$80-90 1/4 oz of DANK
$140-180 1/2 oz of Dank
$250-330 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!!
