Yes, cannabis is legal for recreational use in the Golden State.
But the law is still hazy in a lot of people’s minds.
Here’s a pot primer for those confused about cannabis.
1. You cannot buy cannabis for recreational use — yet.
That likely will start in January 2018.
2. You can consume it if someone gives it to you.
Gifts? They’re fair game.
3. You cannot consume pot if you are younger than 21.
Sorry, kids. You’ll have to wait.
4. You can grow up to 6 plants on your property.
Amateur horticulturists, rejoice. But keep this in mind: The plants have to be in a locked area and not visible from a public place.
5. You cannot smoke it in public.
Yes, that includes San Francisco’s Dolores Park.
6. You can possess up to an ounce of dried flowers and up to 8 grams of concentrate.
But who’s counting?
7. You cannot smoke pot and drive.
Not even once.
8. You cannot transport marijuana over state lines.
That’s a federal felony.
9. You cannot send cannabis in the mail.
Canna-grams are out of the question.
10. Your employer can still fire you for using marijuana.
The law says companies can let go workers who test positive — even if there’s no indication they were high on the job.
Now that you’ve seen this pot primer, pass it along to your friends.
