Lawmakers in California just permitted the legalization of Cannabis delivery anywhere in the state, but cities and counties still have the power to ban the sale of Cannabis; like Santa Clarita. After many confusions regarding legalizing it, some rules were changed and a lot of penalties for minor offenses were removed. Although these rules took action over a year ago, this policy is relatively recent. This means that most of the city residents are still not aware of what exactly changed. Most people don’t know that after the new Cannabis regulations, officially it can be delivered right to their doorstep!
Personal Use & Law
Possession of up to one gram of dried Cannabis or up to 8 grams is now legal for a person 21 years of age or older. It’s forbidden for anyone who’s under 18 years. A lot of people seem to overlook that in some states where Cannabis is only legalized for therapeutic use. However, as long as it’s legal based on some specific required regulations, then all you have to do is to follow the rules! But still, property owners and landlords are still allowed to prohibit the usage of Cannabis in their properties.
Growing Your Own Cannabis
Now the law enables Californians to cultivate up to six plants inside their private residences for personal use. Even though the legislation sets some requirements for homegrown Cannabis, such as prohibiting planting them in some areas like the back or front yard and balconies. Residents are also legally allowed to smoke in their homes or in private closed places since it’s for recreational usage. Also, there are no permits or approvals necessary in order to grow your plants inside your residence, of course, unless substantial changes happen.
If you are interested in growing your own crop, the first thing you should look into is a grow tent and also how to assemble a grow tent as that is the basic key to it all. After some research you’ll realise it’s not a big deal and surprisingly simple.
However what matters the most is that you keep your planting process private. Your neighbors shouldn’t see your plants, especially if you live in an unfamiliar place. Another interesting fact about the rules of growing plants, is that the law states the towns and neighborhoods within your residence that are allowed to grow their own plants; this includes private properties and rentals. This way you can check if you’re on the right side of the law. On a side note if you’re in rental property you should make sure with the landlord you can use their house to grow as although it may be legal they may not let you grow in their property and you could end up in trouble.
