Proposition 64 – The Adult Use of Marijuana Act – Changes Effecting Adults and Juveniles

Changes in California criminal law

The Alameda County Superior Court has posted information on its website about changes that the passage of Proposition 64 – The Adult Use of Marijuana Act – brings to criminal procedures.  Here are the links:

  • Prop 64: The Adult Use of Marijuana Act
    • Effective November 9, 2016, Proposition 64 (the Adult Use of Marijuana Act) legalizes specific personal use and cultivation of marijuana for adults 21 years of age and older.
  • Prop 64: The Adult Use of Marijuana Act: minors and the law
    • Proposition 64 does not decriminalize marijuana-related offenses for minors, but it does amend existing statutes to provide that most marijuana-related offenses for minors are infractions.  In addition, Proposition 64 limits the penalties that can be imposed when a minor commits a marijuana-related offense to drug education or counseling and community service.
