Governor John Hickenlooper made it official on Tuesday: Colorado is the first state in the country to make recreational marijuana use regulated and legal.
The politician was an opponent of legalizing the drug when it was up for a vote in November, but residents made their voices heard at the polls.
“Recreational marijuana really is new territory,” Hickenlooper said at this week’s signing, changing his tune a bit and referring to the new law as “common sense.”
According to the new guidelines, Colorado adults – ages 21 and over – will be limited to buying up to an ounce of pot for recreational use from specialty licensed retail shops.
They can also grow up to six plants at home.
