Legalization

Certainly, the “Green Wave” is continuing its way through the nation. Because of this, more and more states are beginning to consider legalizing marijuana. Consequently, cannabis and cannabis-related products now seem to be moving to the center of the pain-management discussion.

Finally, the negative stigma that has been associated with the drug is beginning to fade. And therefore, discerning cannabis enthusiasts in each state should surely be aware of the legal aspects of handling the substance.

Another piece of good news comes from assessing and implementing the legislature of already established cannabis-legal states; due to these trailblazers, researchers and growers alike can now take an unbiased look at what worked for those states and use that as a template throughout the country.

Keep reading for an exclusive WeGrow breakdown of some major players in the medicinal/recreational cannabis spectrum. If you live in any one of these states, or just plan to visit for some cannabis tourism, be sure to pay close attention to the following do’s and don’ts:


California

First, we come to the “Golden State”, thusly named due to its role in the gold rush of the late 19th century. It is also one of the first states to recently experience the ‘green rush’. California’s cannabis boom stems from the measurable success of its medicinal marijuana legalization which happened in 1996 and covers patients with various illnesses. Exactly 10 years later, Proposition 64 (which allowed recreational use) passed by a considerable margin.


Certainly, California’s climate is almost a completely natural fit for the cannabis plant. Because there is so much ample sunshine and warmth, the conditions in this state are ideal. Consequently, those growers lucky enough to have outdoor farms will tell you just how big, bountiful and therefore worthwhile their annual grows end up. Due to all this, a visit to the local dispensary throughout the state will reveal an environment bursting with California flavor, with such staples as OG Kush, Sour Diesel, Blue Dream, & Jack Herer dominating most of the prime counter space.

The Breakdown:

Personal Use: Adults over 21 able to possess up to 1 oz.

Sale/Delivery: Gifts of 28.5 grams or less allowed

Cultivation: Adults over 21 able to cultivate up to 6 plants

Oregon

Secondly in our State-By-State Cannabis Law guide, we have Oregon. Unofficially nicknamed “The Beaver State”, similarly to California, Oregon is one of several western American states to legally embrace cannabis in the last quarter century. “The Oregon Trail” has been revived in a cannabis-centered way: it is a trail being blazed by entrepreneurs and enthusiasts alike in a new frontier of wellness.


Certainly, perhaps one of the most important facts about Oregon and cannabis is that in 1973 the state became the first in the nation to decriminalize personal use. Medicinal legalization measures were enacted in 1998, and full recreational legalization occurred in 2015.

The Breakdown:

Personal Use: Adults over 21 able to possess 1 oz. or less in public, 8 oz. or less at home

Delivery: 1 oz. or less homegrown without compensation is legal

Cultivation: 4 plants per household

Washington State

Next, we continue north to Oregon’s neighbor, “The Evergreen State” as it is unofficially known. The moniker not only reflects its sprawling forests of green, but also Washington State’s attitude towards cannabis. It decriminalized medicinal use in 1997, and followed with legalization of personal use in 2012.

The fundamental difference between Washington State and other legal states is that you are unable to legally grow your own cannabis. Perhaps in the coming years by observing the actions and data of other nearby states, Washington will begin to allow its citizens to cultivate.

The Breakdown:

Personal Use: Adults over 21 able to possess up to 1 oz

Sale/Distribution: Illegal

Cultivation: Illegal

Colorado

Lastly, we come to our weed-friendly-western-states’ neighbor to the east: “The Centennial State”. Colorado’s monumental groundbreaking 100 years after the inception of the United States, and because of this it has engendered the pioneer spirit within its citizens. Hence, this is decidedly reflected in the state’s favorable cannabis policy.

With some gold rush involvement also in its history, Colorado has since taken its part in the green rush as well, and for good reason!

Colorado voted to legalize medicinal marijuana use for patients in 2000, and full recreational legalization for adults came in 2012. The natural springs cascading down from the Rocky Mountains provide the freshest water source for fortunate outdoor growers. However, with adverse winter conditions there is therefore also a burgeoning indoor cultivation scene.

The Breakdown:

Personal Use: Adults over 21 able to possess up to 1 oz.

Sale/Distribution: up to 4 oz. is a Misdemeanor

Cultivation: 6 plants per adult, 12 plants max per household
