High Asset Divorces: Colorado’s Marital Property Laws and Implications
September 12, 2023READ THE POST
While stuck at home, you may find you want to turn to marijuana usage to alleviate your boredom. However, it is important to make sure your boredom doesn’t lead to trouble with the law.
For medical marijuana users who are quarantined or practicing social distancing in Colorado, House Bill 1234 passed just in the nick of time. House Bill 1234 is the bill that allows home delivery of marijuana. However, it is important to note that home delivery is currently only available from licensed medical marijuana providers to patients who have red cards.
That means if you are trying to practice social distancing and remain in your home during the coronavirus crisis — as you should — access to recreational marijuana will be more difficult.
While dispensaries are permitted to remain open with certain restrictions during the shutdown, they are still unable to deliver it to your home for recreational use. It is also important to note that under the new law, different cities can decide whether or not they want to allow delivery within their borders.
What can you do to avoid breaking the law?
If you absolutely must leave your home, the safest way is to make your order in advance online. Many dispensaries are able to leave your purchases curbside, limiting the interaction you have with employees.
To avoid legal trouble and stiff penalties, it is important that both you and the seller are following Colorado law during the interaction. To stay on the right side of the law when buying weed, here are some key points to remember:
Delivery of recreational marijuana from retailers and third-party services won’t be available until January 2021. Advocates of the marijuana industry are pushing to have the rollout of recreational delivery rescheduled for a sooner date in light of the current crisis.
According to industry advocates, home delivery would promote safety practices and encourage more Colorado residents to comply with the stay-at-home order. Right now, however, that isn’t legally possible.
