Marijuana use in Colorado is legal as long as someone has a state medical marijuana registry card, but there are certain laws that need to be followed. The rules are as follows: no smoking it in plain sight or open place in public, you can't operate a motor vehicle and you can't put anyone's health in danger. These laws however do not protect the card holder. They can be prosecuted and arrested even if they have a registered card, employers are not required to tolerate the use of medical marijuana or exempt them from drug testing and can still be fired and could be in violation of their rental or lease agreement with the landlord and must risk taking the chance to inform them of their medical marijuana use.
