In a pun-filled, jam-packed Facebook post last week, the committee sent out greetings to nonprofit guys who wanted to refresh their standard license plates.
“ISIT420? The #ColoradoDisabilityFundingCommitte had TEGRIDY stomp off some great HERB-related license plate configurations and make them available to you, ”the post said. “Don’t be GREEN with envy, because your neighbors GOTWAX and HONEY are offering a plate and support people with disabilities! Colorado GANJA license plates could make you as HAPPY as your 100% HEMP t-shirt. Let yourself go from SATIVA and INDICA, take off the BONG and use our HASHtags to join in. “
In fact, the Post has each of the 14 weed-themed vanity labels up for grabs.

The auction events page states that with a bid you will “acquire the rights to use this license plate configuration on your official Colorado license plate. You are responsible for paying the standard DMV registration fees when you register the license plate configuration for your vehicle. “
According to Merry Jane, bids started at $ 420 ($ 525) on most plates, although some chugged at $ 250 ($ 312.50).
A quick check on April 6, around noon – almost five days after the bidding wars began – revealed that Herb, unfortunately, had some catching up to do, having achieved a maximum bid of $ 440 ($ 550) by that time. Conversely, ISIT420 and TEGRIDY – based on the fictional weed company in South Park – were on fire and offered chi-chinging bids of $ 6,440 and $ 2,060 and $ 2,575, respectively.

In total, seven of the 14 bids at that point ranged from $ 500 ($ 625) to $ 1,000 ($ 1,250).
Out-of-staters are welcome to bid and win, but unfortunately the signs are only official in Colorado, reports Merry Jane.
It’s all fun and of course for a good cause, but the committee also stresses the need to obey the law on the auction site as well. “DO NOT RUN UP! PLEASE USE CANNABIS RESPONSIBLY WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF ALL COLORADO LAWS, ”emphasizes the committee on each offer page.
