Weed in California

What to Know about Cannabis Delivery in California

Although California is generally known as a cannabis-friendly state, there is some nuance to regulations about ordering weed delivery, buying weed, and growing cannabis. As cannabis businesses gain legitimacy and popularity, many laws and regulations are changing and being updated. We took a look at the current state of cannabis in California plus the laws and regulations you need to know about.

Recreational weed delivery in California

Thanks to the 2016 MAUCRSA (Medicinal and Adult‐Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act), adults over the age of 21 can partake in recreational cannabis. Prop. 64 regulates medicinal-use cannabis and has provisions for growing, testing, and selling cannabis and cannabis products, like CBD. 

Prop. 64 paved the way for the boom in canna-businesses and the normalization of cannabis and cannabis products. Thanks to Prop. 64, adults can carry a small amount of cannabis at LAX (and other state airports), adults can enjoy edibles, and growing a personal-use amount of cannabis is no longer a crime (up to six plants). 

In 2019, the state launched the Bureau of Cannabis Control to help oversee and regulate cannabis delivery, weed shops, dispensaries, and the sale of flower, vape cartridges, edibles, concentrates. The goal of the bureau’s Get #weedwise campaign is to encourage consumers to search for and buy weed from licensed dispensaries rather than unregulated dealers. 

If you’re wondering about weed delivery, rest assured that you can get cannabis delivered legally. In 2018, some municipalities challenged dispensary deliveries in their areas. Thanks to a 2020 ruling in the Fresno County Superior Court, cannabis can be delivered anywhere in the state.

Order weed delivery online

When you’re searching online for “weed near me” or “cannabis near me” on Yelp or Google it’s easy to get sidetracked by ads or unlicensed businesses. Use the bureau’s online tool to make sure you’re buying from a licensed dispensary. 

Just because you bought cannabis from a dispensary or ordered weed pickup from a legitimate business, doesn’t mean you can light up just yet. Cannabis use is still more tightly regulated than alcohol consumption so there are additional rules you should be aware of before enjoying your edibles. Feel free to enjoy your vape, concentrates, or edibles in the comfort of your own home. Be sure to wait until you're indoors, since consuming cannabis in a motor vehicle is not allowed. And, it should go without saying that driving under the influence is prohibited.

You’re prohibited from opening cannabis packages or consuming weed in public - like in the dispensary’s parking lot or at the beach. It’s also worth noting that you’re not allowed to bring or consume cannabis in any national parks since they’re considered federal land.

Cannabis regulations are changing quickly as marijuana gains acceptance for both recreational and medical use. Recreational cannabis use is legal for adults over the age of 21 but medical marijuana still requires a Medical Marijuana Identification Card through the Medical Marijuana Identification Card Program (MMICP). In order to get a medical marijuana card, you need a valid state ID and a recommendation from a licensed doctor (which can be done through an in-person visit or by telehealth visit). A medical marijuana card (formerly MMJ card) allows you access to different, medical-use products, medical-only dispensaries, and removes certain restrictions on possession limits.

All these changes may be updated with the next election cycle so it pays to stay up-to-date on both state-level and municipal laws.
