Coloradans have until 4:20 p.m. on Saturday to bid for the rights to cannabis-themed license plates in a state auction.

The annual auction features 10 phrases, including 420, COHEMP, HASHISH, HILIFE, REEFER, among others. Proceeds from the auction will go toward grants and state programs to support people with disabilities.

Since the auction launched in 2021, the state has raised more than $96,000, according to a news release from the governor’s office.

Bidders can win the right to own the use of the marijuana phrases on their state license plates or they can buy a novelty plate and keep the right to use that phrase in the future. Winners could also choose to resell the license plate phrase through the state’s Disability Funding Committee.

Last year, the DANK license plate sold for $600 and MJ for $520. Residents interested in participating in the auction can do so at


“The Colorado Disability Funding Committee has been an incredible support to the many nonprofits and local partners statewide working to improve life and increase opportunities for Coloradans with disabilities. This auction continues to be a meaningful way to celebrate Colorado’s cannabis industry while making an impact in the lives of others,” Lt. Governor Dianne Primavera said in a written statement.

Officials also want to remind Coloradans not to drive while under the influence of marijuana, according to the news release.
