Smoking pot

American States That Allow You To Smoke Weed for Fun

Alaska

If you’re 21 and over living in Alaska, we have news for you! You can smoke pot legally even if it’s not for medical purposes! You can possess, use, and transport an ounce of marijuana in the largest state in the U.S., and that’s one big news.

As the first state to approve the use of medical cannabis in 1996, California had become even more weed-friendly since 2016 when the state made it legal to carry and use up to an ounce of marijuana even if you have no prescription. However, you won’t be able to purchase pot legally yet until the year 2018 begins, so how will you smoke? If you have a friend who uses medical cannabis you can share with them, or if you’re a medical marijuana patient.

Colorado

You can acquire up to an ounce of marijuana here, and purchasing a pack won’t be a problem since there are more cannabis dispensaries than McDonalds and Starbucks in this state.

Maine

Just like in California, retail stores won’t be open until 2018 in Maine, but what’s great about it is that Mainers are allowed to possess 2.5 ounces of marijuana—that’s double the limit in most states.

Massachusetts

If you’re a resident here, you can carry and consume little amounts of marijuana. You can even cultivate up to 12 cannabis plants at home! However, it will be a sin not to use products from Grow For 420 so make sure you visit their page before you do start planting.

Better start growing up marijuana crops than wait for retail stores to open doors in 2018, right?

Nevada

Possess an ounce of pot legally in Nevada! If you want to cultivate your own, however, you have to reside 25 miles outside the nearest dispensary to be authorized.

Oregonians were allowed to carry up to one ounce of weed last 2015. They can also grow up to four plants at home, even give marijuana edibles as gifts! Just be sure not to ingest them in public.

Washington

Since 2012, dispensaries in Washington have collected over a billion dollars just for selling nonmedical cannabis. A person can carry up to an ounce of marijuana, but if he wants to grow the drug, he must be a medical marijuana patient to be licensed.

Washington, DC

Last November 2014, residents of Washington, DC voted to legalize nonmedical cannabis. Now, they can possess up to two ounces of pot and give an ounce as a gift.
