Marijuana Laws in California

Although marijuana has been found to be a relatively harmless substance with legitimate medical benefits, it remains highly regulated.

Since January 1, 2018, California law has permitted adults who are 21 years of age or older to legally possess up to one (1) ounce of marijuana or up to eight (8) grams of concentrated cannabis.

When those limits are exceeded, California marijuana law makes it a crime to use, possession, possess with intent to sell, cultivate or traffic in cannabis except for the exceptions provided in California’s medical marijuana law known as Proposition 215.

Misdemeanor penalties apply for the possession of a small quantity of marijuana over the legal threshold. More serious felony penalties apply to the sale, delivery, transportation, or cultivation of marijuana.
