Cannabis-themed license plates are up for auction in Colorado for the second year in a row in an effort to raise funds for the state’s Disability Funding Committee.

Full story after the jump.

For the second year in a row, Colorado is auctioning off cannabis-themed license plates, the proceeds of which will benefit the state Disability Funding Committee. There are 22 different official state license plates in this year’s auction, including “420,” “HASH,” “EDIBLE,” “THC,” and “CBD.”

The state raised more than $45,000 from last year’s auction, Lt. Governor Dianne Primavera said in a statement.

“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.” – Primavera in a press release

As of Tuesday morning, “WEED” had the highest bid total at $2,620, followed by “MRY JANE” at $2,320, “420” at $2,100, “CBD” at $1,420, and “HASH” with a $1,220 bid total. Other plates that had received bids were “CANABIS” ($770), “BLUNT” ($720), “710” ($670), “NORML” ($670), “THC” ($670), “BONGWTR” ($620), “GOTHEMP” ($520), and “CO2,” “DABBING,” “EDIBLE,” “GOT OIL,” “RESIN,” “TERPENE,” “TOKER,” “TRIM,” and “VISINE,” which each had reached the opening bid of $420.

The winning bidder does have the right to resell their configuration through the committee in the future.

Last year the plate “ISIT420” received the highest bid at $6,630, while the “TEGRIDY” plate – named after the fictional cannabis farm featured in the television show South Park – saw a high bid of $4,930. “BONG” rounded out the top three from the inaugural auction with a $3,890 high bid.

This year’s auction will run until 4:20 p.m. Mountain Time on April 20.
