Colorado Marijuana Sales Limits At A Glance

DENVER (AP) – In a bid to prevent newly legal pot in Colorado from being taken out of state, state lawmakers are poised to limit marijuana purchases by non-residents.

Colorado’s pot law allows adults over 21 to possess up to one ounce, or about 28 grams, of marijuana in any form – from concentrated hash to oil.

Residents over 21 would be allowed to buy up to an ounce of marijuana per transaction. Non-residents could buy up to one-fourth of an ounce in a single transaction.

There wouldn’t be daily transaction limits, though visitors and adults alike would still have the one-ounce possession limits.

An ounce of marijuana flowers would nearly fill a standard sandwich-sized plastic bag.

Rolled in paper to the size of a standard U.S. cigarette, that ounce would make about 28 cigarettes. Joints vary in size and can be much bigger or smaller than a tobacco cigarette.
