A Very Happy New Year for Pot Shop Operators in California
Bureau of Cannabis Control awards retail licenses to over 100 California dispensaries as recreational marijuana is now for sale in The Golden State.
Sales of recreational marijuana began on Monday, January 1, after Californians voted to legalize the drug in the 2016 election. The market's debut brings an end to prohibition in the most populous state, which is now also the biggest legal marijuana market in America.
Adults over the age of 21 can now use, carry, and buy up to an ounce of marijuana for non-medical use, and grow as many as six plants at home, without a doctor's letter.
