Cannabis has been legal for recreational use in California for nearly five years. From delivery services and storefront dispensaries to the state’s first marijiuana competition, California residents can enjoy their herb medicinally, recreationally and freely — to an extent.

While weed is legal in the state, there are limitations and penalties for some.

Also of note: Individuals 18 and older can qualify for medicinal marijuana. Minors qualify in few situations. Otherwise, you need to be 21 plus.

For example, Proposition 64, the Adult Use Marijuana Act, only allows adults 21 years old and over to possess and grow marijuana for recreational use. Those under 21 who are caught with weed that is not medically licensed can face fines, mandatory drug education or counseling and community service.

Other ways you can get in trouble with the state for having weed include the following:

HAVING MORE THAN THE LEGAL AMOUNT

According to a California Health and Safety Code, people 18 years and older who “possess more than 28.5 grams of cannabis, or more than eight grams of concentrated cannabis, or both, shall be punished.” That’s the equivalent of about 1 ounce. Punishments include imprisonment in a county jail for up to six months or a fine of up to $500, or both. [Read More @ The Sacramento Bee]
