18 and over can buy with valid cards

Variety - - Legalization And Entertainment -

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.
