Article X. Offenses Involving Marijuana
Offenses Involving Marijuana is a very commonly charged offense in the Fort Collins Municipal Court.
Sec. 17-191 Consumption and Possession of Marijuana
Even though the use of recreational marijuana is now legal in Colorado, Fort Collins still has certain restrictions by which a person must abide. A Consumption and Possession of Marijuana summons is issued in the Municipal Court when a person is consuming marijuana openly and publicly or in plain view of the public. Also, when a person under the age of 21 is in possession of recreational marijuana, or medical marijuana without a valid registry identification card they will be ticketed. Possessing more than one ounce of recreational marijuana or more than two ounces of medical marijuana is against the Fort Collins Municipal Code.
