Three Big Important Recreational Cannabis Questions!
There’s an endless amount of information to learn about cannabis, and how the cannabis market works in Arizona. Nobody needs to know EVERYTHING – but there are some key details to be sure on:
Do people in legal marijuana states get arrested for marijuana?
It is possible if you break the law. Although cannabis is legal, there are limitations to it. Adult use customers over the age of 21 are allowed to possess up to 28 grams (1 ounce) of cannabis at any given time. If that cannabis product is concentrates, it cannot exceed 5 grams. This restriction is to prevent the divergence of cannabis to others that cannot legally obtain it. Therefore, if somebody is found to have over the appropriate allotment in their possession, they could be subject to the punishments of law.
Is it illegal to buy cannabis from a state where it is legal if you are not from there?
It is completely legal for somebody from outside of Arizona to enter Arizona and purchase legal recreational cannabis with a state issued ID. However, if you cross state lines with your recreational purchase, you may be violating state law since cannabis laws vary state to state. Just because it was purchased legally, does not mean it is legal everywhere. You are always subject to the laws of the current state you are in.
Is it illegal to fly home with cannabis from Arizona to your home state?
Yes. Cannabis is still federally illegal. Airports operate under federal laws and Homeland Security will seize any cannabis they find. It does not matter if you are flying to a state that also recognizes recreational cannabis – it’s illegal while in the airport.
Recreational cannabis is a blessing to Arizona and is available for anybody to enjoy and appreciate. However, it is important to be well-informed in order to avoid any unnecessary trouble. With laws being different in nearly every state in the country, it can get confusing. As long as you understand these key details of Arizona recreational cannabis laws – you will be just fine!
