California voters approved the legalization of recreational use of marijuana under Proposition 64. Accordingly, Proposition 64 would allow anyone 21 and older to possess, transport, buy and use up to 1 ounce of marijuana for recreational purposes. Further, this will also allow anyone 21 and older to grow up to six cannabis plants.
Would federal authorities have jurisdiction to enforce marijuana laws against dispensaries?
Theoretically, federal authorities would be able to enforce marijuana laws because under recreational use of marijuana is illegal under federal law. However, federal officials have noted that they do not plan to enforce many marijuana laws that have legalized recreational use of marijuana.
What are the restrictions under Proposition 64?
- Adults 21 and older to use marijuana
- May possess up to 28.5 grams of marijuana
- May grow up to six plants at their private home locked and not visible to the public.
