Where can I legally buy recreational marijuana in California?

Anyone 21 and older can now legally buy marijuana in California with just an ID.

However, only shops with both local permits and state licenses to sell recreational cannabis can open their doors to customers who don’t have doctor’s recommendations for medical marijuana.

Special report: Cannabis Eve in California

The Bureau of Cannabis Control on Dec. 14 started issuing temporary licenses for recreational marijuana sales. Here’s a map of shops that are sanctioned to sell cannabis to adults. The map will be updated frequently, with new state licenses issued each day.

To see a list of shops sorted by county, click the arrow in the upper left-hand corner. Click the arrow under “dispensaries” to see individual shops, then scroll to find your county.
