Despite the fact that cannabis is legally available in Colorado for any use, the state still operates a medicinal marijuana system for valid patients. Medical patients in The Centennial State must pay the standard sales tax, but are exempt from the additional excise and state taxes that apply to recreational sales.
Qualifying conditions for medical marijuana in Colorado include:
- Any “condition for which a physician could prescribe an opioid”
- Autism spectrum disorder
- Chronic pain
- Chronic nervous system disorders
- HIV or AIDS
- Persistent Muscle Spasms
- Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome
All adults 21 and over with a valid government-issued ID can purchase products from a recreational dispensary.
