WHO IS ELIGIBLE UNDER CALIFORNIA’S RULES
18 and over can buy with valid cards
As of the first of the year, Proposition 64 made “adult use” of cannabis legal in California. Anyone over the age of 21 with a valid ID or driver’s license from any state can legally purchase cannabis. For those with a valid medical card, the age limit is 18.
Consumers can purchase up to 1 ounce per day, or 8 grams of concentrates and edibles, subject to a statewide 15% excise tax.
Within Los Angeles city limits, a 9.5% sales tax can be bypassed with a Marijuana Identification card, issued to medical patients by the County of L.A. Public Health for $75.
There are reportedly eight licenses for “lounge use” being offered in a lottery by West Hollywood that would pave the way for legitimate public smoking venues and infused restaurants.
