As of January 1st, medical and recreational (adult use) marijuana became legal in the state of California. Per the Prop 64 measure, adults over the age of 21 can now consume, purchase, possess, and grow cannabis without the fear of prosecution so long as they are within the regulation of the new law… and in accordance with any other policies put in place by the city in which they reside.

And there are three different licensing agencies, depending on which segment of the industry is involved: the state Department of Food and Agriculture for cultivation operations, the Department of Public Health for the manufacture of cannabis products like edibles and ointments, and the Bureau of Cannabis Control for distribution, sales, and testing.
