So I’m from London and I’m going to be in L.A in June, I was just wondering what the situation is on tourists purchasing weed?
I’m aware that I cannot buy from a medicinal dispensary. But I heard recently it has been legalised in California but I don’t know if i can buy it legally from a recreational shop or if they even exist yet in California..?
Hey there! Thanks for the kind words and checking out the site! California is currently in a “gray area” where they have legalized recreational cannabis, but there still are not legal retail locations to make purchases. That being said, there are definitely some dispensaries that have been making illegal recreational sales since November. It all comes down to where you go try, and if they’re playing by the rules or not.
Given that information, California Marijuana Laws are pretty darn loose, so you will likely encounter people puffing in public. The scene is pretty friendly, so if you ask around, you’ll likely find a helping hand!
I hope this information is helpful! Please feel free to post again if you have any additional questions! Also, you should post again after your trip to let us know how it went! Good luck and have a great Earth Day!!!
