Your 2018 California Cannabis Vacation Guide
In the past, California has been among the states which are more tolerant to cannabis, having decriminalized it in 1975. Later on in 1996, it became the first state to legalize marijuana for medicinal use, and then in 2016 the Adult Use of Marijuana Act (Proposition 64) saw the legalization of recreational cannabis use for adults 21 years and over. A giant leap in the fight for marijuana legalization. Take a look below for a brief overview and our first installment of the California Cannabis Vacation Guide for 2018.
Restrictions and Limitation of Marijuana Recreational Use
As usual cannabis is only for adults over the age of 21 and are legally allowed to use marijuana recreationally. The possession limits are, 28.5 grams of marijuana flower or 8 grams of marijuana concentrate. Now you can also purchase the same amount for now, but that may change in the future. You can find more on the California marijuana laws here.
Cultivation of marijuana is restricted to only six living plants and must be kept away from the public eye.
Driving under the Influence is also prohibited, with penalties ranging from informal probation, fines and even jail time. Therefore it would be wise to consume your cannabis legally and responsibly of course. Lyft and Uber abound all over the western state and Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego have decent public transportation systems.
California Dreaming – No public consumption
Those of you adventurous ones wishing to travel to California should always be a discreet as possible. Just use common sense and courtesy. For some places you can employ the use of vaporizers, just be careful as to where you decide to indulge your favorite oils. When it comes to consumption of cannabis, you are restricted to the privacy of your residence or in designated areas set aside. It goes without saying that you cannot consume marijuana in public or in zones that prohibit smoking (this includes rental apartments as well).
Now since the golden state just legalized recreational marijuana use only recently your going to have to wait until the beginning of the year before you will start seeing recreation places open. They will have the usual fare of flower, oils, concentrates and other fine cannabis products for you.
