On Wednesday, Colorado will make U.S. history when the country's first retail marijuana stores open to all adults 21 and over.

Colorado is connected to Arizona at the famed Four Corners Monument. If you already like its wonderful, camping, mountain fun, hiking, and hunting, you now have another good reason to visit Arizona's neighbor.

Here are five things Arizonans should know if they plan to indulge while there:

5. Who can buy and use marijuana in Colorado?

You, Mr. or Ms. Arizonan, if you're 21 or older. Thanks to 2012's historic, voter-approved law, and the Obama administration's blessing of it, customers with out-of-state IDs can buy up to a quarter-ounce of pot at the new stores.

And that's per transaction, says Rachel Gillette, a lawyer and executive director of Colorado NORML. In other words, an Arizonan could buy a quarter-ounce at each of the three Telluride stores in the same day.

Food and drink items containing marijuana will be available, too. The limit on them depends on how much weed or concentrate is in the product. That is, if a quarter-ounce was used to create a small bottle of tincture, the out-of-state customer would be at his or her limit after buying one bottle. Until a visit to the next store.

Prices: Medical-marijuana has been relatively cheap in Colorado, with an eighth of quality bud going for as little as $20. Experts say you can expect to pay more, possibly a lot more, at the retail stores in the near future because of huge demand.

 Greedy Big $$ Colorado Dispensary Cartels TRIPLE their prices for "legal" weed.


"What really, really blew my mind was walking out with my wallet $70 lighter for 3.5 grams of pot. Basically, the same Chemdawg that I bought last week at $20 an eighth was going for nearly triple the price. I'm surprised my jaw didn't drop far enough to shatter the glass counter. One of the employees behind that counter tried to explain the high pricing to the New Jersey couple by talking about how high the excise tax is on wholesale buds, as well as the lack of supply and the cost of licensing and switching over to a dual-use facility. She also said prices would "level out" down the line -- let's hope it's soon, because $70 for an eighth of pot is absurd. Like, tourist in New York City absurd."

The REALITY of Colorado's Amendment 64 -- the Commercialization of Cannabis


A64 did NOT legalize marijuana -- even the authors of that turd stated as much.


A64 did NOT repeal a single marijuana Felony statute in Colorado.


A64 did NOT repeal a single Criminal Misdemeanor statute regarding marijuana in Colorado.


A64 did NOT even repeal the Criminal Offense of Public use/display of a single joint, bud, seed or edible, instead explicitly declaring that such behavior was not protected.


A64 explicitly declared that all private sales between consenting adults shall remain illegal -- a FELONY for a single gram!


A64 explicitly declared that Driving under the INFLUENCE of Marijuana shall remain ILLEGAL, which is now set at a paltry 5 ng/ml rendering nearly ALL mmj patients in violation.


A64 explicitly EXCLUDED EVERY ADULT under 21 yrs old from ANY LEGAL ACCESS to any rec. marijuana -- leaving 10s of thousands of young adults subject to the FULL CRIMINAL penalties of extant law -- even for a single joint, or a single plant, or a single seed.


Since A64 was passed, CRIMINAL Marijuana Citations in Denver have INCREASED 19 TIMES higher than in 2012 !!

get a medical marijuana card and you can legally smoke recreationally in Arizona as well.

One ounce is legal but if you go to 3 stores and buy an ounce at each , that would be 3 ounces, can you be arrested for possession of more than one ounce ?

Not you again could you please just go away?  We get it you hate people who use Cannabis.  Yes there are stupid people who use it as well as brilliant people.  There are doctors and lawyers who use it as well as thugs and criminals.  There are people who use it that hate drugs and alcohol and their are drug addicts and alcoholics that use it.  But whatever you are doing, is proving nothing but it is making people wonder why you just hate so much.  Give it a rest you're not changing the world or anyones opinion.

Poor Donkey, you should seek some professional help.  At first I thought you were just a hater but now I think it may be much worse than that.  Really you should seek some help.  This isn't normal.  Did you have problems with drugs as a child?

@DonkeyHotay I have to hand it to you that was a good comeback.  You are correct I am none of those things.  I am just an engineer and a member of Mensa.   I think the people that use this stuff have a right to do whatever they want, as long as they aren't hurting you or me.   It's called freedom.

Lighten up you may have a more enjoyable life.
