How to weed Colorado’s Highland Recreational Grows
Highland recreational marijuana, a federally illegal drug, is legal in Colorado.
That means that the Colorado Department of Public Health (DPH) is now allowing recreational marijuana to be grown and sold, according to a press release.
However, the state’s medical marijuana program, which allowed growers to grow up to five plants, has been shut down.
The DPH also stopped the cultivation of medical marijuana and made it more difficult to cultivate medical marijuana, according the press release, which cited an amendment passed last month that allows DPH to enforce medical marijuana rules.
This news comes just two weeks after the DPH closed the recreational marijuana market in Colorado, citing the state as having too few patients.
“The DPH is a fully operational agency,” said spokeswoman Lauren St. Laurent.
“We’re continuing to enforce our existing marijuana regulations.”
Colorado legalized medical marijuana in 2014, but it’s illegal to grow or sell marijuana in the state.
