Question to those in the know about Colorado's marijuana dispensaries.

I'm thinking I'm going to need to make a road trip or two in the near future, ahem. Problem is, the only part of Colorado that is remotely practically reachable (by car) is Springfield in the southeast corner of the state. Maybe Pueblo, but even that is slightly out of my range. So, does anyone know if Springfield has any dispensaries, or will have once the new law kicks in? Will every city and town in Colorado have dispensaries, or will they be limited to certain areas? Inquiring minds want to know.

1. Medical Marijauna is widely available throughout Colorado from dispensaries with a legally valid

prescription from a COLORADO-licensed physician for any number of indications. A few locales have passed ordinances to disallow dispensaries.. Just google the town or city along with key word, "marijauna dispensary" and you should find what you need.

However, if you are thinking you can legally come to Colorado without a medical need because of the recently passed legalization initiative, that is going to have lots of issues to sort out--foremost being that transporting between state lines is likely to remain a very BIG Federal issue for some time to come. Further, just because that ballot initiative passed, doesn't mean it is automatically kosher to purchase... The CO Attorney General has indicated he will work on enacting policies/procedures around it, but it will be some time before it sorts itself out and there will very likely be Federal push-back. So, as with many things, buyer beware-- at least on the short term. Since it sounds as though you'd be coming from either Oklahoma or Kansas border, I'd be willing to bet very conservative aw enforcement in those states are just drooling to crack down, should you transport into their states.

2. Re:

Thanks, and I did get that sense. I was kind of meaning, like, down the road a bit, after those things have worked themselves out, assuming they work themselves out favorably for, umm, buyers.

4. Isn't it only 1 ounce?

Or in other words the weight of about 3 or 4 sheets of paper? You gonna travel all that that way for 3 or 4 sheets of paper worth in weight?

It's a start but I think folks need to come down out of the clouds.

5. 3 or 4 sheets

3 or 4 sheets of paper is about a month's supply by my usage. I didn't know about the limit, but what's to stop me from buying one ounce here, another ounce across the street? One ounce today, another ounce tomorrow? Etc. An ounce of weed is quite a bit, actually.

6. There's nothing stopping you from doing that however...

the law is regarding possession of small amounts - an ounce or less.

So you can keep going back and going back as long as you consume it before you possess more than an ounce. It's not like you can really stock up for a while.

I guess it just takes me more to get high.

7. I'm a light weight...

Couple little hits a day is all I require. I used to be a much heavier hitter. Don't age.

I'm not worried about breaking the quantity limit. Heck, the out-and-out ban here already doesn't stop me. But being able to BUY legally, and I'm assuming the variety of buying options, is what attracts me. I'm sure people from my area will be making trips.

8. Transporting across state lines will remain a problem.

Likely that the bordering states will up their police presence and probable cause stops, at least early on. So if you're going to try, make sure your plates are good, you have insurance, check your brake lights and turn signals...

I personally expect shops to spring up near the borders, like fireworks stands in Wyoming or the adult toy shops just across state or county lines -- to take advantage of the interstate trade. That will take time, though - the Lege has a year.
