Limited Time Only: Marijuana Themed Colorado License Plates on Sale
It's no secret that Colorado and cannabis go hand-in-hand, and for the second year, Coloradans can bid on custom cannabis license plates.
According to a press release from the office of Colorado Governor Jared Polis, 22 Colorado Cannabis themed license plates have gone up for auction and will benefit the state's disability funding committee.
“For over a decade, Colorado has been a leader in the cannabis space, bringing bold, innovative and creative businesses to the state. This effort allows us to celebrate Colorado’s mile-high reputation and fund critical projects and programs in our disability community” said Governor Jared Polis.
2nd Annual 4/20 Colorado License Plate Auction
On April 1st, 22 cannabis-themed license plates went up for auction in Colorado, and it was no April Fool's joke.
Paying tribute to cannabis enthusiasts' favorite time (4:20) the auction will also end on April 20, at 4:20 PM.
The money raised from the cannabis-themed license plates will go directly to the Colorado Disability Funding Committee.
The profits will then be used and will be used to "fund grants for disability application assistance as well as new and innovative programs increasing quality of life and independence of Coloradans with disabilities."
“Last year’s cannabis-themed license plate auction raised over $45,000, which supported Colorado’s disability community. This is a fantastic opportunity to provide grant funding to not-for-profit and for-profit organizations that serve people with disabilities. I’m thrilled to continue to support the efforts of the Colorado Disability Funding Committee,” said Lt. Governor Dianne Primavera.

While auctioning these cannabis-themed license plates is all in good fun, Governor Polis urges the public to remember that driving while under the influence is not a joke.
What definitely isn't a joke is the price you'll pay if you get a DUI. You could be looking at fines of up to $13,500, jail time, the loss of your driver's license, and more.
