Marijuana For Personal Use

 

 In 1996, the State of California became the first state in the nation to legalize medical marijuana when voters passed Prop 215 or The Compassionate Use Act. That distinction is now shared with 27 other states. 

 

On November 8, 2016, California voters passed Prop 64 or the Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA) , allowing adults 21 years or older to legally grow, possess and use marijuana for non-medical purposes.  California is currently one of only seven states where recreational marijuana is legal.  Check our Adult Use/Prop 64 page for answers to possible questions on recreational marijuana.
