Colorado.gov/Marijuana
Created to provide statewide current information for the general public on the data and health effects of marijuana and retail marijuana laws. The information available here will continually expand to feature a Spanish language version of the site, newly released data and public awareness campaigns to inform Coloradans.

Good To Know



The campaign's platform, Good To Know, is designed to reach and educate all Coloradans age 21+, both users and non-users alike. Whether you choose to use marijuana, or choose not to, legalized retail marijuana is now a part of our collective everyday life in Colorado, so it's important that we all share a baseline understanding of Colorado's retail marijuana laws. With a tone that's as friendly, colorful and neighborly as Colorado itself, the Good To Know campaign very clearly communicates laws and safety guidelines regarding marijuana use, while delivering those messages with a tone that neither promotes nor negatively judges marijuana use. By educating Coloradans in this way, the campaign empowers us all to make safe, legal and responsible choices. Because when it comes to marijuana in Colorado, there's one thing we can all agree on — it's good to know.
