As follows is a Guide to Buying Legal Weed in California.
As of January 1st, Californians over the age of 21 can now legally purchase marijuana. California residents passed the legalization of adult-use cannabis possession and sales. California has expectations to become a billion dollar market. In addition to California, dispensaries in Nevada recently opened for business.
In California, medical cannabis sales have been going on in some form since around the 1990s. Retail outlets that were previously only allowed to sell marijuana to patients will med cards, are now open as general adult-use dispensaries.
To buy legal marijuana without a med card in California—head to Berkeley, San Diego, San Jose or Santa Cruz, Mount Shasta, or out in the Southern California desert.
It seems that only cities with locally approved laws will be able to host sales on New Years Day. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case for Los Angeles or San Francisco on January 1st. In both LA and SF, dispensaries won’t begin selling until a couple days into 2018, pending permits are awarded.
