Increased Plant Counts in Pueblo

With the legalization of marijuana use in Colorado comes jurisdictional limits to the number of plants that can be grown in residences. The increased plant counts Pueblo residents are limited to is 12 for those living in an apartment or duplex and 18 for those in a single-family dwelling.

While the Colorado Constitution allows six plants, with three or fewer being mature, flowering plants that are producing a usable form of marijuana, it allows for more if medically necessary. With the extended plant count Pueblo residents are afforded, the law does take into consideration the treatment efficacy medical marijuana provides many patients. Diseases such as cancer, glaucoma, HIV, and AIDS are just some of the medical conditions that patients, caregivers, and doctors recognize as those with symptoms which can be relieved with marijuana use. Medical marijuana also helps alleviate symptoms and conditions that cause severe pain, nausea, seizures, and muscle spasms. The benefits of medical marijuana for those patients in needs of symptomatic relief makes the extended plant count welcome news to many.

One item of note for those wishing to grow marijuana in their homes in Pueblo and remain in compliance with home grow laws, is that growers are required to register with the Pueblo Police Department first: “It shall be unlawful for any patient or primary caregiver to cultivate marijuana until he or she has first registered the location with the Pueblo Police Department and presented his or her state medical marijuana registry identification card to the Police.” Also of note is that growing marijuana anywhere other than one’s primary residence is illegal.
