Individuals cultivating marijuana plants for medical or recreational purposes must have their marijuana plants in an enclosed and locked space.
Effective Jan. 1, 2018, a bill signed into law by Governor John Hickenlooper places a cap on the number of plants that can be grown on a residential property at 12 plants for both medical and recreational purposes.
