Medical marijuana has been legal in California since 1996. Proposition 64 legalized the use of recreational marijuana in California, for adults 21 and over, in November of 2016. Possession for personal use of no more than 28.5 grams of marijuana and of up to four grams of concentrated cannabis (hashish) for people age 21 and older is legal.
Legal Marijuana Distribution
Proposition 64 legalized the sale of marijuana for businesses which operate in compliance with state and local licenses. The intent to sell without proper licensing remains a crime under Health and Safety Code 11358 HS. Licenses are issued by the Bureau of Marijuana Control. It is a felony to sell marijuana to a minor. As is the case with driving with an open container of alcohol, driving with marijuana is an infraction.
