Colorado is known for its beautiful landscapes, epic ski resorts and for being one of the first states to legalize recreational marijuana. Now, the state is auctioning off hilarious weed-themed license plates and it’s all for a good cause.

The Colorado Disability Funding Committee is an organization created by the Colorado legislature with the goal of helping residents in the state with disabilities. CDFC has a pretty clever way of getting additional funding and it’s by selling fun license plates. The organization’s latest form of license plate funding is in the form of selling off marijuana-themed license plates, and I love every single one.

Bidding is already high on seemingly popular plates like BONG and GANJA. BONG is currently at $2,250 with 23 bids.

If you want to express how much you love the color green, unfortunately, that will set you back at least $2,500. But that’s not as bad as ISIT420, which is lighting up the list at $6,510 with 65 bids.

There are some other hits in there, too, like SATIVA, STASH and TEGRIDY.

The cheapest plate of the lot right now is HERB at $690 and 21 bids, but that’s bound to increase as more bids are placed.

The best part is the auction start and end date. It started on April 1 at 4:20 p.m. MDT and it ends on, you guessed it, April 20.

CDFC notes that DMV charges are not baked into the price of these plates. If you win a plate, you’ll still need to pay for registration fees, taxes, vanity plate costs and any other fees before you slap it onto a car. Granted, I feel like putting a weed-themed plate on your car will turn it into a cop magnet.

Still, I love it. These plates are some good fun and the state gets to make some green for its disabled communities. It’s a win for everyone! But as a friendly reminder, please don’t drive high.

I feel like these plates would be a great way to make sure that any nearby police pay a little extra attention to you and your driving when you are on the road. I mean, it’s still super illegal to drive under the influence so I’m not sure that broadcasting how much I like to get high (I like it quite a bit, for the record) is a great way to go about my daily commute. Not to mention if I wanted to take a trip to a prohibition state…
