Exploring Dispensaries in Costa Mesa: What to Expect

Under California law, you must be 21 or older to enter a cannabis establishment and purchase marijuana. You must also have a valid government-issued ID when buying cannabis. Many of the shops have security guards that check IDs and make sure people are of legal age before allowing them to buy cannabis.

In addition, you may not consume marijuana in public places or while driving under the influence of cannabis. Cannabis is also illegal to possess or consume at work, in school, on federal property or at a public park. If you are caught smoking marijuana in these locations, you could face a $100 fine.

However, you can smoke cannabis in private residences. In addition, under the MAUCRSA (Medical and Adult Use of Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act), residents who have medical marijuana cards can grow up to six mature and 12 immature plants in their homes. You can also grow and consume up to 28 grams of marijuana and 8 grams of cannabis-infused products at home.
