Every state has its own regulatory system when it comes to medical marijuana, and the state of California is no exception. To legally use medical marijuana in California, patients must have one of the following medical conditions:
If you’re a current California resident, a certified doctor can help you prepare an application showing proof of your medical condition and identity. Proof of residence such as a utility bill, mortgage agreement or rental agreement will also be required. Lastly, you’ll pay an application fee as determined by your county of residence, and you’ll get your picture taken for your medical marijuana card.
Per proposition 215, you may have as much medical marijuana as your doctor deems necessary for your personal use in any given month. However, if you exceed a “reasonable amount” you can be arrested and cited for the excess.
Effective January 1, 2016, you can use up to 100 square feet to cultivate medical marijuana for your private use in California. If you’re a caregiver using medical marijuana for your patients, you can have up to five patients, or 500 square feet of medical marijuana.
Unfortunately, legal patients can still be arrested if the police feel that you have more cannabis than you should have on your person or premises. The end result will be determined by the individual court judging a patient’s medical claim.
