Legal Marijuana in California January 1 2018
It has been legal to use and grow certain quantities of marijuana in California since Proposition 64 was approved on November 8, 2016.
But legal sales of recreational marijuana were delayed until 2018 so the state could set up a way of taxing and regulating the transactions.
That time has come.
Here’s what you need to know when sale of marijuana becomes legal in the state of California.
When will retail sales begin?
Legal sales of recreational marijuana begin on January 1, 2018, but it may be hard to buy it right away. First, cities and counties in California had to approve the sale of marijuana in their jurisdictions.
Then, dispensaries in those cities had to seek a license from the state Bureau of Cannabis Control. Due to delays, San Francisco won’t allow sales to begin until January 6.
Other cities, like San Jose, will be ready to go on January 1.
Can I buy marijuana anywhere?
Sales will only be allowed in approved dispensaries.
Many Bay Area cities like Palo Alto, Millbrae, and Sunnyvale have banned dispensaries and will not allow sales.
San Jose, San Francisco, Oakland and Berkeley are among the cities that will allow dispensaries to sell recreational marijuana.
Who is allowed to buy recreational marijuana?
Anyone 21 and over with valid state identification can legally buy marijuana.
How much can a person buy?
Sales will be limited to one ounce (28.5 grams) of raw marijuana and 8 grams of cannabis concentrates.
