How Prop 64 Legalizes Marijuana in California?

Recently, Californian voters approved Prop 64. This measure will legalize marijuana in the state. Prop 64 is much more than simply legalizing cannabis on state level. It consists of sixty pages of detailed regulations. The goal of the state regulation is to run the program more efficiently so that the state generates more tax revenue from weed than they did with the earlier medical marijuana regulations. Other states that have implemented recreational marijuana are Washington, Alaska, Colorado, Nevada, and Oregon, and California.

Growing your own Marijuana

This measure states that an individual above the age of 21 will be permitted to grow 28.5 grams which is equivalent to an ounce of cannabis. A person is allowed to grow 6 marijuana plants. The plants are not allowed to be visible to public. Licenses for pot growers will be available in the future for those who seek to grow cannabis on a commercial level.

Purchasing from Cannabis Dispensaries

In 1996, medical marijuana was approved in California. This allowed cannabis users with a doctor’s recommendation to purchase their medicinal marijuana through a dispensary. There is a slight problem that many weed consumers will find with Prop 64. Currently, there is not a legal way to purchase recreational weed. Cannabis dispensaries will be allowed to sell recreational marijuana once the state issues licenses to retailers in 2018. This would then allow for the commercial growing of marijuana.

How Prop 64 Changes Consuming Cannabis

Prop 64 states that cannabis users are not allowed to smoke marijuana in public. This can be punishable by criminal arrest and fine. Users should consume their weed in private solely for respect of other people that may not be so down with weed. Those with under an ounce of cannabis will not be criminally prosecuted. If you sell or exchange weed, this can be punishable. It’s important to remember that this marijuana-related measure doesn’t extend to the private or public workplaces. Although you may be legally allowed to consume cannabis in a private matter, an employer has the right to not allow for marijuana in the work place or similar position.

When will recreational marijuana be sold in California?

With Prop 64 being implemented in 2017, it’s important to understand the regulations for marijuana and how they apply to you. It will be illegal to purchase recreational marijuana in 2017, until cannabis dispensaries are allowed to sell recreational marijuana in 2018.  There will be a lot of confusion and frustration from those who want to consume weed but are unable to purchase it. Overall, this measure will allow for many more cannabis consumers to seek marijuana now that people can have access to weed; not just for medicinal purposes but also for recreational use as well. Some people don’t have the ability to get a medical marijuana recommendation and may not have the medical conditions warranted for medicinal cannabis in their respective state. This marijuana legislation will allow access to those cannabis consumers starting in 2018 for California. A public concern for many people is the influence of cannabis on young adolescents. If recreational marijuana can be managed in an efficient and safe manner, the potential benefits for the people and state of California is immense.

    Here you can see some of the alternative ideas that were created for the area as a result of a series planning meetings with the public back in 2006. This process was delayed long ago in order to address Mt Umunhum specifically, So who knows where any of this stands – Plans and Projects – Open Space Planning – Grabtown Gulch Trail Repair + Bridge

    When you assume negative intent, you’re angry. If you take away that anger and assume positive intent, you will be amazed. Your emotional quotient goes up because you are no longer almost random in your response.

    Man is not logical and his intellectual history is a record of mental reserves and compromises. He hangs on to what he can in his old beliefs even when he is compelled to surrender their logical basis.

    We are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of Nature has placed in our power… the battle, sir, is not to the strong alone it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.

    If you pay a child a dollar to read a book, as some schools have tried, you not only create an expectation that reading makes you money, you also run the risk of depriving the child for ever of the value of it. Markets are not innocent.

    If you are not prepared to use force to defend civilization, then be prepared to accept barbarism.
