Colorado is auctioning off the rights to 14 cannabis-themed license plates to benefit the Colorado Disability Funding Committee. In a statement, Gov. Jared Polis (D) said the state has “been a leader in the cannabis space for over a decade” and the effort will allow funding of “critical projects and programs” for the disabled community.
Included in the auction are plates displaying, “SATIVA,” “GANJA,” “ISIT420,” “STASH,” “HASH,” “HONEY,” “BONG,” “HEMP,” “HERB,” “HAPPY,” “INDICA,” and “GREEN.” The auction also includes a “TEGRIDY” plate based on the cannabis farm of the Marsh family in the Colorado-based television show “South Park.”
“This is a fantastic opportunity to provide funding to a program that serves individuals with disabilities. I’m thrilled to support this effort and look forward to seeing which plate raises the most funds.” – Lt. Governor Dianne Primavera in a statement
As of Wednesday morning, bidding for “ISIT420” had reached $6,600, followed by “TEGRIDY” at $3,270, “GREEN” at $2,510, “BONG” at $2,290, and “INDICA” rounding out the top 5 with $2,250.
The auction will close at 4:20 pm (MST) on April 20. Winning bidders will be able to use the configuration of letters and numbers they chose on a novelty plate of their choosing but must pay registration fees, personalized plate protection fees, and the costs for potential designer backgrounds, the governor’s office said, adding that the rights can be used at a later date if needed.
