Buena Vista has a cozy small-town environment and plenty of things to do outdoors. Residents come for the community, while visitors get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The town doesn’t let retail dispensaries do business, but it does have medical marijuana centers. If you need to go to a recreational dispensary, you can find retail locations throughout surrounding Chaffee County. The county also provides additional medical choices.
In Colorado, retail and medical dispensaries operate differently. While they both sell cannabis products, they each accept certain kinds of customers. You need to have a Colorado medicinal marijuana card to buy from a medical dispensary — even adults over 21 must have one. Recreational dispensaries accept all adults over 21, but they don’t require medical marijuana cards or provide medical-grade products.
If you can get a medicinal cannabis card, you will find more benefits at a medical dispensary than a recreational one. Medical marijuana centers have stronger doses of medicine and tax 2.9 percent on purchases instead of 15 percent.
However, out-of-state patients can’t buy medical cannabis even if they have a card from their state. Anyone without a medical cannabis card must buy marijuana from a recreational store in Colorado. These dispensaries have many products that work like medical items, but you have to pay a higher tax.
Adults ages 21 or older can carry up to one ounce of cannabis at a time. They can also give another adult up to an ounce of marijuana as long as they don’t receive anything in exchange. Registered patients have the liberty to own up to two ounces of marijuana. Cardholding patients can also appoint a caregiver to buy, transport and grow medicine on their behalf.
