People Line Up to Buy Legal Weed in California

Californian pot retailers Legal recreational marijuana The first stores opened this 2018 Cannabis market

Phil Murphy, who will be sworn in as the governor of New Jersey later this month, said during his campaign that he aims to have pot legalized during his first 100 days in office.

Despite these advancements, Pennsylvania likely will not permit the sale of recreational marijuana anytime soon given the state's conservative tendencies.

The city of Los Angeles hasn't yet issued local licenses to pot stores.

Other areas, like Riverside, Fresno, Bakersfield, Pasadena and Anaheim, have not fully implemented the new law. Vallejo has long-since allowed the sale of medical marijuana.

In San Jose, Oakland, and Berkeley sales were crisp as all three cities previously allowed various dispensaries to begin selling recreational cannabis.

California was the first state to legalise use of medical marijuana in 1996, prompting 30 other U.S. states to follow suit.

That came as California made selling pot for recreational purposes legal for people 21 or older, and allowing them to possess up to one ounce of the drug.

Select retailers in California will begin engaging in adult use marijuana sales on the morning of Monday, January 1, 2018.

In some cases the use of marijuana is permissible, but it is still illegal to consume it in public and private areas in each of these states. Another general rule: Don't smoke anywhere where tobacco is prohibited.

"I'll pay the taxes, give it to the government, whatever they want to spend it on, as long as I get what I need".

There are also concerns that the relatively low number of licenses issued so far for recreational marijuana could lead to a dry spell if the new distribution system fails to meet demand fast enough. Furthermore, users can grow up to six plants for personal use.

The business has grown from nine employees and dozens of customers four years ago to 80 employees and 45,000 customers, said Moutawakkil, a Santa Cruz native. Henry Wykowski was the first customer.

The new year also brings new taxes for Vallejo's medical dispensaries and those throughout the state.

"All these other states that can't improve their roads, can't improve their schools, are going to start looking at this as a source of revenue", said John Mueller, the CEO of Acres Cannabis.

Some operators are expected to have their temporary approvals for recreational sales early next week, said Cat Packer, executive director of the city's Department of Cannabis Regulation.

Third, you can not consume the drug if your employer has policy against the use of marijuana.
