Depends on who you ask. I believe state law allows up to an ounce for medicinal use, but the DEA doesn't recognize this and regularly busts people and dispensaries (which are licensed by the state to distribute medical marijuana when prescribed) because it's illegal according to federal law.

federal law = illegal.

much like how removing a cat is illegal on a car by federal law, but some states, like florida don't enforce it.

Probably saw something because I believe it wa Oakland was putting a tax on dispensaries for selling, like a 1.5% tax or something like that on total reciptes.

In other MJ news, despite its quasi legal status state and federal authorities raided and netted over a billion in marajuna plants growing illegally in CA in the last month or so. Also nabbed something like 80 members of a Mexican cartel involved in the growing and distribution.

Re: Is weed legal in cali?

medical marijuana use is legal in california. you need a prescription or medical referral to legally possess or grow it.
the feds recently announced that they would no longer target legal dispensaries.

there are some efforts to legalize it for recreational use. we could use the estimated ~$7 billion/yr in tax revenue.

Re: Is weed legal in cali?

I was reading a really poorly written editorial article on CNN a little while ago. Basically the guy started out by saying we should ban tobacco because it kills so many people (more then all other drugs combined) and because of the 2nd hand issues. Also that nearly half of Americans support a ban on smoking (100% ban). Then segued in to, but hey a ban isn't realistic so we should legalize all drugs.

wtf???

It was rather poorly written with a bit of a logical leap.
