What Would Be Legal?
The following are the things that would be legal once the proposition is enforced:
Adults who are above 21 years of age can walk around freely in public with up to 28.5 grams of cannabis. This means that no police officer or law enforcement officer can arrest you if you carried a sandwich baggy full of cannabis. It also permits adults 21 years and above to walk freely with up to a maximum of 8 grams of concentrated cannabis.
This proposition also allows adults to gift an ounce of marijuana to another adult who is 21 years or older. You can give an ounce of marijuana to another person who is 21 years or older without the fear of being arrested or prosecuted.
Proposition 64 also permits individuals who are 21 years and above to grow up to six marijuana plants inside their homes or private property. However, the area must be locked and not visible from a public area. If you do not own the property or building, you will be required to get permission to grow cannabis.
Cannabis pipes as well as other accessories are also legal. Patients with a medical doctor’s note or approval and state identification card can also avoid paying cannabis sales taxes.
The cultivation and processing of industrial cannabis is 100 percent legal in the state starting January 1st 2017. On top of that, marijuana lounges could be legalized for adults above the age of 21 only if a locality allows them.
