There is so much to learn about this wonderful business especially the shop within Hollywood that is set to bring so many changes to the area.

History of Weed Consumption in California

California passed the Poison and Pharmacy Act back in 1907. This act prohibited the sale of morphine, cocaine, and opium without a prescription. Marijuana was included in this act just 6 years later. California was actually one of the first states to prohibit cannabis. The first marijuana drug raid happened in LA’s Mexican American Sonora town neighborhood back in 1914. By 1925, marijuana possession had some major consequences if caught with the drug. You could get up to 6 years in prison if caught. Thereafter, more severe consequences were added to this law with possible sentences going up to 10 years for possession of marijuana. In 1972, California tried to legalize the herb using the Proposition 19. Sadly, many residents ended up voting down on this. Fast Forward to 1991, almost 80% of voters gave the legalization a thumbs up but by 1992, it was only sold to medical patients by the San Francisco Cannabis Buyers Club. The big day didn’t come until 2016 when legalization of marijuana in California was granted in only dry and concentrated form. As of today, California is only one of 9 states where cannabis is legal recreationally with more soon to follow.
