Recreational Marijuana is now Legal in California!
Starting Jan 1st 2018, California legally allows permitted businesses to sell marijuana to adults age 21 and over. California is not the first state to pass this law, California joins Alaska, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington to become the 8th State with non-medical use of cannabis.
This is thanks to the passage of proposition 64 in November of 2016, legalizing the sale and cultivation of recreational marijuana for adults, California will be the biggest state to legalize by far (by population).
Even though recreational use is now legal, you can’t smoke it in public, or within 1,000 feet of a school or daycare center when children are present. You also can’t smoke and drive. Local governments have the authority to make their own rules governing use, which will cause further confusion.
Smoking weed from legal establishments will also be more expensive than street versions, thanks to the taxes imposed by the state. California anticipates generating a billion dollars in new revenue from recreational sales within a few years.
Most important we want everyone to be safe and responsible. Cannabis should always be stored in a safe place away from children and pets and you should never drive or operate any machinery when using. Find out more by clicking here
