The growth, use and regulation of marijuana currently resides in a grey zone in the United States. With some marijuana use being legal in the state of Colorado but still illegal federally, the law in this area can get confusing. In Colorado, a person over the age of 21 may grow up to six plants for personal use (with no more than three mature plants at a time). However, growing any more than this is illegal and comes with varying punishments in relation to the number of plants. Caregivers can also grow marijuana for themselves and their patients and each county can limit the number of plants that can be grown
As criminal defense attorneys in Colorado, we are often asked about witness related issues. Our most common question - "I'm a witness for a domestic violence case, do I have to testify?" The vague and simple answer is, it depends.
Now that marijuana possession is legal in Colorado, parents of teenagers have less to worry about, right? Not so fast. The 2013 amendment that legalized marijuana possession for adults over age 21 didn't change any of the laws affecting youth under 21.
