22 cannabis-themed license plates are up for auction

Colorado is auctioning off marijuana-themed license plates to raise money for the Colorado Disability Funding Committee.

DENVER — Colorado has launched an auction of the rights for 22 license plate configurations with cannabis-themed phrases.

Cannabis-themed phrases up for auction include "420," "WEED," "HASH," "EDIBLE," "THC," and "CBD."

Bidding is online and will remain open until 4:20 p.m. on Wednesday, April 20.

Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Colorado Disability Funding Committee to support new and innovative programs for the state's disability community.

"For over a decade, Colorado has been a leader in the cannabis space, bringing bold, innovative and creative businesses to the state," said Colorado Gov. Jared Polis (D). "This effort allows us to celebrate Colorado’s mile-high reputation and fund critical projects and programs in our disability community."

Winning bidders get the right to use the configuration of letters/numbers they chose on a novelty plate and can use the rights at a later date if needed. People still have to pay registration fees, the personalized plate protection fee and the costs for a potential designer background.

"Last year’s cannabis-themed license plate auction raised over $45,000, which supported Colorado’s disability community," said Colorado Lt. Gov. Dianne Primavera. "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."
