Recreational marijuana is legal in Massachusetts for adults over the age of 21. However, there are many restrictions that are still in place. If you use marijuana, it is important to understand these laws so that you do not end up in trouble.
According to the law:
- You can’t use marijuana in any form (smoking, vaping, edibles, etc.) in public or on federal land. This means you cannot use marijuana on public beaches, national parks or other public areas.
- You can have up to 1 oz on you and up to 10 oz in your home. If you have more than 1 oz of marijuana in your home, it has to be kept in a locked box. You can also grow up to 6 plants per person in your home, and up to 12 plants for 2 or more adults. These limits are important. If you wish to grow more than that amount or have more for resale, you will need a valid license.
- It’s illegal to drive under the influence of marijuana and you cannot have an open container of any form of marijuana in the passenger area of your car while on the road or at a place where the public has access. It must be stored in a closed container in your trunk or a locked glove compartment. If an officer sees marijuana in your car, or smells it on you, or suspects that you have been using, you can get arrested for OUI marijuana.
