Recreational Marijuana Is legal in California on January 1.

Here’s what you need to know.

Over a year after California voters passed Proposition 64 in November 2016, recreational marijuana will officially be legal in the Golden State. Of course we have many questions.

Thankfully, 89.3 KPCC, a public radio station based in Pasadena, provided some answers on the proposition’s impact on the “budding” industry.

Here’s a quick breakdown:

  • You have to be 21 or older to buy recreational marijuana. (18 and older for medical.)
  • You can grow up to six plants.
  • You can possess 28.5 grams of flower, or 8 grams of cannabis concentrate.
  • It’s illegal to drive high.
  • You can smoke in your own home or backyard. If your lease prohibits it, you can’t smoke in your rental unit. You can’t smoke in public, in a restaurant or a bar.
