On Nov. 8, California voters can choose to vote for or against Proposition 64, which would legalize recreational marijuana use for adults over the age of 21.
What does it mean if Prop 64 passes? Essentially, it would mean that any person over the age of 21 could possess, buy, or transport up to one ounce of marijuana and cultivate up to six plants in his or her home.
However, while the common way to describe the effect of the law is to say that it “legalizes” marijuana, it is important to know that it would not make every act involving marijuana legal. So how would passing Prop 64 affect marijuana crimes in California?
