Any adult in the state of California can posses up to 28.5 grams of marijuana and 8 grams of concentrated marijuana.

Smoking is permitted in private homes or at any business licensed for on-site marijuana consumption.

An individual is permitted to grow up to six plants within a private home, as long as the area is locked and not visible from a public place.

Smoking remains illegal while driving a vehicle, and anywhere smoking tobacco is too, and is illegal in all public places.

Now of course like all the other recreational cannabis laws, possession on the grounds of a school, day care center, or youth center while children are present remains illegal.

Selling marijuana for recreational use will be by businesses that have acquired a state license.
