While the state of Colorado legalized recreational marijuana in 2014, the city of Colorado Springs decided to only allow the distribution and sales of medical marijuana within city limits. Fortunately, the Denver metroplex is only an hour north and there are other cities closer by that allow the sale of recreational marijuana, such as Manitou Springs and Pueblo. Colorado Springs does have dozens of medical dispensaries that are easily accessible, offer online ordering, and provide plenty of product variety. Please note that it is illegal to use medical and/or recreational marijuana in public – the penalties for public use are much higher in Colorado Springs than most other Colorado cities. Additionally, most stores operate between the hours of 8 AM and 9 PM and do not offer delivery services.
