The home of the San Francisco weed dab bar and vapor lounge also features a knowledgeable staff of budtenders and a showroom that, during non-pandemic times, also serves as a venue for wellness counseling, classes, support groups, and social events. Be sure to check out their monthly cannabis farmers market where notable California cultivators provide demonstrations and deals and activists such as The Waldos, the originators of 4/20, and advocacy icon Ed Rosenthal have served as speakers. With products on the shelves like Cannabis Quenchers CBD lozenges to Mary’s Medicinal transdermal gel pens, Magnolia offers plenty for both social smokers and ailment-focused patients alike.
So now that cannabis (also called marijuana, pot, weed, and other nicknames) is legal, does that mean it’s a free for all? Can you buy as much as you want just like cigarettes and alcohol? Well, the rules are a bit more complicated than that. This is why it’s important to understand the rules before you start making purchases in San Francisco.
Here are the rules and regulations set in place for cannabis purchase/possession:
- Similar to alcohol, you must be 21 or older to purchase, use, or poses recreational cannabis including use for eating, smoking, vaping, etc.
- You are not allowed to give or sell cannabis to minors (under 21).
- It is illegal to drive under the influence of cannabis.
- It is illegal to consume cannabis in any form (smoke, vape, eat, etc.) in public at all including bars, restaurants, workplaces, parks, sidewalks, etc. (so pretty much you can only do it at home).
- It is also illegal to take your cannabis across any state lines, even if it’s legal to have cannabis in that state.
- It is illegal to consume or possess cannabis on any federally owned land such as national parks even if it’s within San Francisco.
- You must get a state issued license to be able to sell retail cannabis products.
