What's Up in California?

Recreational cannabis legalization was was approved by California voters in 2016, and legal sales began in January 2018. Medical cannabis has been legal since 1996.

Where Are Things Now?

  • Adults over the age of 21 may possess up to one ounce of cannabis and eight grams of cannabis concentrates. They may also grow up to six plants in their home.
  • All cannabis purchased from licensed dispensaries is tested for pesticides and other contaminants.
  • Although cannabis retail shops are banned in roughly 60% of California, new regulations allow cannabis delivery services to deliver statewide.
  • California collected $345.2 million in tax revenue from cannabis sales in 2018.
  • California continues to have a thriving cannabis black market that has stifled the growth of the legal cannabis industry and reduced the amount of tax revenue the state receives from cannabis sales.

Where Are Things Going?

  • Some lawmakers have proposed lowering cannabis taxes in order to invigorate the industry and weaken the cannabis black market.
  • According to a 2018 law, the state must identify past cannabis convictions that are eligible for for dismissal and/or sealing by July 2019. People who were convicted of cannabis-related crimes that are no longer illegal may also petition to have their convictions sealed or dismissed (the DA of San Francisco recently expunged over 9,000 past cannabis convictions).
  • A handful of major cities have created social equity programs to help those who have been harmed by cannabis prohibition get licenses to operate in the legal cannabis industry. The state authorized its own social equity program in 2018.

Fun Fact:

  • California became the first state to legalize medical cannabis when voters approved the Compassionate Use Act in 1996.
