Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits if I make MMJ America my primary care-giver?

What’s the deal with legalization of marijuana in Colorado?

The legality of marijuana is interesting and always changing. Amendment 64 made legal recreational marijuana dispensaries a reality by allowing any adult over  age 21 to purchase marijuana. Amendment 64 did not change Colorado medical marijuana laws, and MMJ America will continue to supply medical marijuana to patients and members. Under Amendment 20, medical marijuana patients with a state-registered Colorado Red Card can purchase from any dispensary.

What do I need to buy marijuana today?

If you are over age 21, bring an official government issued ID to our LoDo Denver dispensary at 21st and Arapahoe Ave and you can purchase marijuana. Our two other dispensaries require a Red Card and an official government ID to purchase medical marijuana until we implement legal retail sales in February. To connect with a doctor and learn more about getting your Red Card, read our How To Guide. If you already have your Red Card, make us your caregiver for member benefits.

How do I figure out what tolerance level I can handle when consuming edibles?

At all of our marijuana dispensary locations, we offer many various edibles with a wide range in dosage. Everyone responds to medical marijuana edibles differently, so we recommend starting with a small dose and being patient as medical marijuana edibles affect the body slower than ingesting by smoke. If a small dose does not produce the desired medicating result, increase the dose slightly and wait to determine your tolerance level.

Do you accept credit cards?

Unfortunately, we cannot accept credit cards at any of our Colorado marijuana dispensary locations. However, we do have ATMs on site for your convenience.

Can I purchase meds at MMJ America if I live somewhere other than Colorado?

Yes, just bring your ID that proves that you are over age 21 and you can purchase marijuana legally at our Denver dispensary at 2042 Arapahoe Ave. In order to purchase medical marijuana in Colorado, you must be a resident of the state and have a state-issued Red Card

How will purchasing work after sale of recreational marijuana is legalized on 1.1.14?

After 1.1.14, you won’t need a Red Card to purchase marijuana legally. You will need a government-issued form of identification that proves you are over the age of 21.

Can I purchase medicine if MMJ America isn't my state-registered primary center?

Absolutely! Although we highly encourage patients to make MMJ America their primary caregiver, anyone with a Colorado Red Card is welcome to shop at all MMJ America locations. However, non-members will not receive our reduced member pricing or Penny Daze benefits.

Patients may obtain thier medicine from any medical marijuana center regardless of whether they have listed that center as their “primary center.”

What restrictions are placed on patients?

Know your rights!   For a full breakdown of Amendment 64 and Amendment 20, see our summary. Here are the most important things to know.

Patients cannot: sell, transfer or give away their medical marijuana.

Patients cannot use medical marijuana:

  1. In a medical marijuana dispensary or other licensed facility;

  2. In a way that endangers the health and well-being of a person;

  3. In plain view or in a place open to the public;

  4. In a correctional facility or community corrections facility; or

  5. In a vehicle, aircraft, or boat.

What to do if the police stop you or show up at your door.


  1. Remain calm and remember to assert your rights.

  2. If the police ask, “Do you mind if I look in your home, car, purse or bag?” --  respond by saying “I do not consent to a search.”

  3. If the police continue to ask, you should continue to respond by saying, “I do not consent to a search.”

  4. If the police ask, “Why not, are you hiding something? -- respond by saying, “I have a constitutional right to privacy. I do not consent to a search.”

  5. If the police have found your medical marijuana, state you are a medical marijuana patient. In this case, simply provide your medical marijuana registration card and say nothing more.

  6. Remember- if the police show up at your house, make sure they have a warrant. If the police do NOT have a warrant, DO NOT give them consent to search your house. If the police present you with a warrant, verify the accuracy of the warrant (check to see if the address is correct, if your name is spelled correctly and if the warrant has been signed by a judge).

  7.  If the police ask you to voluntarily talk with them about your possible marijuana use, remember that you do not have to talk with them at all, much less engage in a lengthy discussion.

  8. If you have a valid Colorado Red Card you can say, “I am a medical marijuana patient licensed under state law to possess, cultivate and consume the marijuana in my possession.”

  9. If you have been charged with a crime related to recreational marijuana use, state, “I assert my right to remain silent, and I would like to speak with an attorney.”
