California voters legalized the recreational use and sale of marijuana on a statewide basis. The law is set to go into effect on January 1. The roll out will depend on decisions made at the local level. The prospects for legal cannabis could look very different in Berkeley, San Francisco, and San Jose. What are the major differences? How do you want marijuana to be sold and marketed where you live? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Renee Kemp, and you.

Medical marijuana is legal in California. Medical marijuana is not legal in California. Both statements are sort of true; while pot shops are allowed statewide, cities still have the right to ban them. In fact, 200 cities already do. That’s left patients on their own to navigate through California’s conflicting and chaotic marijuana laws.

Hey guys,
