The ongoing push for widespread cannabis legalization has led many states to become early adopters of their own laws. Arizona is one such state that has embraced legalized cannabis in its many different forms. Beginning in 2010, voters in the state of Arizona would help to pass the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act. Ten years later, Arizonians would legalize recreational cannabis use for adults aged 21 and over through Proposition 207.
While legalized cannabis may present exciting opportunities, it still falls to you to understand the laws behind legal cannabis use. Let’s explore the recreational rules put in place in Arizona through the implementation of Prop 207.
Recreational cannabis use has many restrictions put in place, beginning with age limits. Adults 21 and older can possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana with only 5 grams of that number consisting of cannabis concentrates. Individuals possessing more than one ounce but less than 2.5 ounces are still breaking the law, albeit with a petty offense.
Cannabis users in the recreational sphere are also limited to a maximum of 100 mg of THC per package of edibles, limiting to 10MG of THC per serving in a standard product.
Additionally, a 16% excise tax is applied to recreational cannabis products, the same as with alcohol and cigarettes. Money accrued through excise tax will go toward funding a variety of state agencies, dispersed between varying districts, police departments, and fire stations. Additional funding is made available for the Highway User Fund.
Finally, home cultivation is legal for individuals with licensing. However, home cultivation of cannabis is limited to 6 plants at a primary residence and 12 plants at a residence with two or more individuals aged 21+.
Cannabis use can impair your ability to drive or operate machinery. As a result, driving, boating, or flying while impaired to the slightest degree remains completely illegal and will be punished as such.l Due to how long cannabis can stay within one’s system, it is incredibly important to refrain from operating a vehicle after consumption.
Cannabis use also remains illegal in all public places, including restaurants, sidewalks, and parks. Offenders will be found guilty of a simple petty offense.
Finally, marijuana testing facilities will all test cannabis for any potentially harmful contaminants including pesticides and molds, among others.
