Colorado’s recreational marijuana laws are unique to Colorado and one of the first in the nation. Obviously recreational marijuana brings its own set of consequences. Even though you may be able to smoke marijuana recreationally, you still may not drive high or under the influence of marijuana.
Law enforcement was often unsure of how to handle medical marijuana cases. Recreational marijuana makes the rules of engagement very clear for police officers. Police officers are now more willing to arrest and charge people with violating the rules surrounding the proper use of marijuana.
