A: Colorado's Amendment 64, which was passed in November, allows people 21 and older to use marijuana, to possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana and to grow up to six marijuana plants. Legal marijuana can be sold only through licensed pot shops, and no registration or licenses are required to possess it. It's still illegal to smoke in many places, including public schools, college campuses, privately owned buildings – including apartment complexes — where the owner forbids it, federal office buildings, courthouses, public parks, sidewalks, national parks and forests. Amendment 64 applies to anyone – residents and visitors – who are in the state. Colorado has until July 1 to adopt regulations for marijuana businesses and until Oct. 1 to begin licensing them, according to published reports.
