On November 8th California voters overwhelming gave approval to Proposition 64 to legalize cannabis. What many people don’t realize is that the provisions in the initiative allowing everyone 21 and older to possess and grow cannabis are now in full effect.
Under the new law, those 21+ can possess and share up to an ounce of cannabis, and up to eight grams of cannabis concentrates. In addition, they can cultivate up to six cannabis plants at a private residence. The initiative also legalizes cannabis retail outlets (supplied by licensed cultivation centers), though they aren’t expected to be open until sometime in 2018.
