When you’re not at home growing plants, you can buy weed from licensed marijuana dispensaries.
And, as we’ve written before, marijuana dispensaries are not a legal option for anyone who has a criminal record, so getting weed from a dispensary is often a way to get out of a criminal charge.
The legality of the recreational market is also uncertain, and legal marijuana is not yet legal in every state.
We can help you navigate the legal gray area.
So how do you get a pot grow license in Colorado?
Here are some tips to help you make the right choice: 1.
Check with the Colorado Department of Revenue.
If you’re a nonresident or a resident of another state, you may need to obtain a license to grow marijuana.
If the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division (MDE) receives a complaint about your business, they can issue a letter to the business asking for information about whether they are legal to grow and where you can find an address for your marijuana business.
Talk to the Colorado Secretary of State.
In Colorado, the Secretary of the State’s office issues a license, which is usually issued within six months of the license being issued.
You’ll need to apply for a license online, but you can get one through the Department of Taxation.
You can also ask the department to issue a license by mail.
Check to see if there is a dispensary nearby.
You may need a medical marijuana license to use marijuana in a home.
However, a medical license is not needed for growing in a residence.
If your home is not a medical-marijuana dispensary, you’ll need a cultivation license.
For more information on this topic, see our guide on Medical Marijuana Dispensaries.
Find out whether the state or city has a medical cannabis license.
If there is, it’s usually issued through the city or county health department.
If not, you should contact the city’s health department, which may have a list of approved dispensaries.
If none of the listed dispensaries are authorized to sell medical marijuana, you will need to grow your own.
Ask the state marijuana board for help.
If a local marijuana board has an official relationship with the state’s Department of Agriculture, you need to contact that agency to find out if there’s a state marijuana license.
Contact the state cannabis agency.
If they don’t have a medical or a cultivation permit, you might need to get a state license.
Call the state agency that issued your license or contact the Colorado marijuana agency.
Check the Colorado Liquor Control Commission website.
Check their website to see what’s legal and what’s not.
For instance, you could visit the Liquor Commission website and ask to get an ID card that will let you buy marijuana from the state-licensed pot shops.
Find the state dispensary nearest you.
If it’s legal to sell marijuana, but it’s illegal to grow it, you’re probably better off looking for a state-approved dispensary near you.
For example, you’d look for the state of Washington or the state where you live.
Check for marijuana dispensaries near your address.
If no one is licensed to sell or grow medical marijuana in your area, you probably need to find a state licensed pot shop.

Check local regulations.
The Colorado Marijuana Control Commission, which issues licenses, regulates marijuana in Colorado.
For marijuana dispensaries in the state, local ordinances and other regulations affect whether you can operate legally.
For information on those regulations, see this guide.
Find your local marijuana dispensary.
Colorado is a very small state, so you’ll have to look up the closest pot shop on the map.
You might also need to ask the county sheriff’s office if the shop is licensed.
Ask for the license online.
If possible, you must get the license in person.
