The voters approved this year, 2018, to fully 100% legalize cannabis, recreational and in addition to the previously legal in the state medical marijuana laws. The law has gone into effect as of Januarly 1st and will allow all residents 21 and over to harvest as well as cultivate up to the maximum 6 plants per household, or residence, as long as they are of legal age.

The laws can be and often are confusing and can have very different penalties for different types of individuals. It is legal for someone that is over the age of 21 to have no more than the 28.5 gram limit of cannabis to be legal and lawfully possess, when somebody between the age of 18 as well as 21 is in possession and ownership of no more than the 28.5 gram limit of cannabis could be charged and arrested for an infraction. And whats even more, while anybody who is over 18 years of age and in possession of more than the 28.5 gram limit of cannabis, will deal with a misdemeanor charge in the state as well as approximately, give or take, 6 months in the jail and a possible fine of as much and up to $500. If that individual is under the legal age of 18, that will belong with more than the 28.5 grams, it will stay an infraction on their record.

District attorneys, even with the new laws that have gone into effect, they are discovering methods and are seeking, actively, alternative ways to get arrests and bust the persons found in belongings of cannabis and or cultivating marijuana so they can seek greater penalties and make the numbers look good in their favor, with little regard for your rights as an individual. So for instance, these charges of keeping a safe location for the sole purposes of selling, or the conspiracy to grow, process and cultivate marijuana, they, unfortunately, remain felonies.
