Colorado auctioning cannabis-themed license plates like GRASS, 420, HASHISH

DENVER (KDVR) — The State of Colorado is auctioning cannabis-themed license plates to benefit the state’s Disability Funding Committee.

The committee launched the auction on 4/20 offering the rights to 10 official cannabis-themed state license plates.

The state started the annual auction in 2021. Last year, license plates with the phrases DANK and MJ sold for $600 and $520, respectively. Since the auction began, it has generated over $96,000.

This year, the state is offering license plates with phrases like COHEMP, 420, REEFER, and GRASS.

Proceeds from the auction go toward funding for “grants to support disability application assistance and innovative programs designed to benefit people with disabilities,” the committee said.

Lt. Gov. Dianne Primavera describes the auction as a “meaningful way to celebrate Colorado’s cannabis industry while making an impact in the lives of others.”

Here is a list of the license plate configurations up for auction this year:

  • 420

  • 710
