Scientists started tested and researching marijuana more than a century ago. It has been a slow road of discovery and is still is process. No one knows all the benefits of marijuana. Who knows what else it can help with? However, people have stated releasing and it has been legal in some parts of the world for a few decades now.
California is one of the few states in the world that understood that marijuana could change the face of the future of medicine if given a chance. It has been more than 20 years that medical marijuana has been legal in California and in 2018 recreational marijuana was officially legal. It was a long struggle to legalise marijuana and took more than 2 years to form a system that can regulate recreational marijuana.
Anyone who is over 21 can buy cannabis seeds in California from any pot store with a government license for any purpose. Now, patients do not even need a medical card to buy marijuana. They may have to fill a form that states they are buying marijuana for medical use as the laws for possession of marijuana is different for recreation purpose and medical purpose.
Patients who buy marijuana are allowed to use and possess higher amount of marijuana than people who just want to buy it for personal and recreation use. Also, people buying medical marijuana are privy to offers like buy 1 and get 1 unlike everyone else. While a person of any age can buy marijuana with a valid card, this may change. It is up to the pot storeowner, they can refuse to sell cannabis seeds in California to people smaller than 21 years.
To control the number of pot stores in the state, the government has limited the number of licenses to 32. This means that at present, there will never be more than 32 pot stores in the entire state.
