Although California now permits the recreational use of marijuana (cannabis), there remain numerous ways in which one may be arrested under marijuana statutes. For instance, it is unlawful for minors to posses any amount of cannabis, or for adults over 21 to possess more than one ounce or more than 6 marijuana plants. Moreover, cannabis remains illegal at the federal level, resulting in ongoing federal marijuana arrests in California.
