Very easy and efficient! Definitely better than waiting in some office.

The interview with the Doctor was quick and easy. The process prior to that (completing the application and uploading documents) was what took the most time. Price was competitive with others.

Getting my rec instantly and online was extremely easy and fast. I completed the application, spoke with a doctor, and never left my bed – which was great since I have a bad cold. Will always go this route in the future!

Reliable, fast, and easy process. Very pleased with my experience.

Responsive and helpful professionals with a seamless process.

Wow! I am grateful for this service. My recommendation was expiring today and I was amazed to find out I could meet the Dr. Online and speak with him directly for my renewal evaluation. My recommendation is in the mail. Thank you.

I was speaking to doctor, who was extremely easy to talk to, within minutes of accessing the website. Getting a download of my rec. took about the same amount of time. I’d recommend LeafWell to all seeking a medical marijuana rec.

Great service! Thank you for supporting the medical marijuana community.

Excellent fast service in our time of need. Staff was very helpful and attentive to our needs! Thank you

2000 – Voters approve Ballot Amendment 20, removing state-level penalties on use, possession and cultivation of cannabis by those with a valid recommendation from their physician.

2010 – Governor Bill Ritter signs House Bill 1284 (HB 1284) and Senate Bill 109 (SB 109). HB 1284 regulates dispensaries, whilst SB 109 ensures that doctors conduct a proper physical examination and that they do not have a DEA flag on their license.

Recreational marijuana is legal in Colorado. Medical marijuana patients may possess up to 2 ounces, and for those without a valid recommendation and card the possession limit is up to 1 ounce.

There is no penalty for giving another a person an ounce or less, providing no money changes hands and the people giving and taking the cannabis are aged 21 or over.

Medical marijuana patients must be aged 18 or older to apply for themselves. Recreational cannabis users must be aged 21 or over.

Both medical marijuana patients and recreational cannabis users may grow up to 6 cannabis plants, with no more than 3 mature plants at any one time.
