For the comfort and convenience of our non-smoking guests, smoking of any kind is not permitted in any of the ranch buildings or on any of the horseback rides.
Although recreational use of marijuana is permitted under certain circumstances by Colorado law, we neither condone nor permit the use of marijuana products on Latigo Ranch property.
Our property is contiguous with the U.S. Forest Service, and many of our activities take place on the National Forest. Use or possession of marijuana on federal lands is not allowed by law. Possession of marijuana on federal land is punishable by up to a year in jail and a fine of $1,000 on the first offense, along with a 15-day mandatory sentence that can be extended to two years in prison for a second offense. After that, perpetrators can receive a 90-day to three-year prison term, and a $5,000 fine.
Find out the law before you come to Colorado. Marijuana use is not as freewheeling as many think. If you are not a Colorado resident, you can only purchase 1/4 of an ounce of marijuana at a time from a licensed retail outlet. You must be 21 years of age. Retail marijuana is intended for private, personal use. Such use is only legal in certain locations not open or accessible to the public. Marijuana may not be consumed openly or publicly. You may not use it in areas accessible to the public such as transportation facilities, schools, amusement/sporting/music venues, parks, playgrounds, sidewalks and roads and outdoor and rooftop cafes. It is also illegal to smoke at indoor-but-public locations like bars, restaurants and common areas in buildings. Driving a motor vehicle while impaired is illegal whether the impairment is from alcohol or marijuana.
Colorado voters approved a measure in 2022 decriminalizing the posession and pedrsonal use of psychedelic mushrooms for those over the age of 21. Again, these are still controlled substances under Federal law. These items may not be purchased or sold and may not be used in public.
