As of 12:01am today, adults will be allowed to carry and share up to 30 grams of legal marijuana in public, according to a bill that was passed in June. They will also be allowed to cultivate up to four plants in their households and make products such as edibles for personal use, according to reports.
Consumers must be at least 18 years old, and the production, distribution or sale of cannabis products is an offense for minors.
