Poor medical marijuana patients in Colorado won’t have pay state marijuana registration fees or sales tax on the pot they buy.

The Colorado Board of Health approved a plan Wednesday to waive the $90 registration fee for indigent medical marijuana patients, starting Dec. 1. Patients who want their fees waived will have to show that they meet other government standards for indigence, such as qualifying for food stamps.

The Denver Post reports that indigent pot patients will also have notations on their cards waiving sales taxes on the pot they buy.

A new medical marijuana law passed by state lawmakers this year called for lower fees for indigent medical marijuana patients.
