What to know: Legal marijuana in California

Last November's election legalized marijuana in California. The odor of smoked marijuana is no longer an indicator of criminal activity, which makes a huge difference on how police must now act.

Can anyone over 21 purchase marijuana? - Not yet, applications for cannabis businesses begin in December of 2017 and the first permits are expected January 2, 2018. After then, the businesses will start sales.  Sonoma seems to have started their sales off last month.

Where can I smoke Marijuana? - You can't consume marijuana in a public place or side walk or around children. Driving and boating are out. Your residence is a fine place to consume and there will also be consumption clubs where you can smoke in a social setting. Magnolia Wellness in Berkeley already is serving patients at their consumption area.

Can I grow marijuana? - Yes, I'm sure these adult use clubs will stock starter clones or seeds and each household can grow 6 plants (more with a med card). Don't carry more than an ounce of dried flowers or 8 grams of concentrate while traveling. At home you're allowed to have the harvest from 6 plants.

What's the price? - The price tends to tumble in states that legalize even if it starts out high. A local favorite here, Flow Kanna brand, already has eights for $35, expect that to drop to $25 or less.

What about edibles? - They are strong AF. Read the dose info on the package then follow it. It is extremely uncomfortable to over dose on THC, and ingested THC is a different THC than when smoked, so experience smokers beware. 

The marijuana industry in California is huge, nothing this size has come online yet. Look for tourism to be huge around LA and the Bay and points North.

July 2014 - In a move highlighting the rapidly expanding support for the League-and-Police Chiefs sponsored bill in the Legislature, Assembly Member Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco) has signed on as principal co-author on SB 1262 (Correa).

If enacted, the bill will be the first serious step toward regulation of medical marijuana since voters approved the Compassionate Use Act in 1996. The bill passed out of the Assembly Public Safety Committee on June 26 on a 6 to 1 bipartisan vote.

Both Sen. Lou Correa (D-Santa Ana) and Assembly Member Ammiano have focused heavily this session on the need for medical marijuana regulations to properly implement the Compassionate Use Act (Proposition 215). AB 1894, a competing marijuana regulation measure by Assembly Member Ammiano failed to secure enough votes in the Assembly last month to move forward.  Since then, SB 1262 has been the sole active bill in this area. Assembly Member Ammiano joined Sen. Correa’s efforts due to a mutual belief that a regulatory framework enhancing patient protections and upholding local control is important.

Amendments taken in the Assembly Public Safety Committee maintain strong local control protections. The bill would create a Bureau of Medical Marijuana Regulation under the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA). A state license could not be issued however, unless applicants submit proof of compliance with local ordinances. If a local agency subsequently notifies the bureau that a dispensary is not in compliance with local laws, the dispensary’s license would be suspended within 10 days.

The amendments would:

  • Create the Bureau of Medical Marijuana Regulation within DCA to fulfill licensing and regulatory functions;
  • Provide that funds for the establishment of the Bureau be advanced as a loan from DCA;
  • Grant the Bureau the authority necessary to administer the new program, contingent on local permitting approval;
  • Require the bureau to deny licenses for past criminal convictions of drug trafficking, embezzlement, fraud or deceit, serious violent felonies, or substantially related crimes;
  • Prohibit licensees from holding a license in more than one class; and
  • Allow the bureau to award provisional licenses for a fee of $8,000 if the facility is in compliance with local ordinances.
SB 1262 will next be heard in the Assembly Appropriations Committee, after the Legislature returns from its summer recess on Aug. 4.
