Believe it or not “marijuana store near me” is a popular key phrase in a state where marijuana can be accessible to the public. If you are in the U.S., visit a marijuana store and find out why marijuana is popular enough to be commercialized. Please note you have to be over 21 years old to be allowed in a marijuana store.

It is, therefore, imperative to be aware of various state regulations regarding marijuana possession. For example, on the west coast of the U.S., you drive from Washington state, through Oregon, to California, and into Nevada without fear of arrest provided you are not driving under the influence. However, if you stopped in Arizona you may be subjected to arrest, as AZ permits marijuana use for medical purposes only.
Since then, there have been signs of progress for three states – Massachusetts, Vermont, and Louisiana.
- Massachusetts (MA): Recreational marijuana can be purchased at dispensaries. It has been two years since Massachusetts residents voted to legalize marijuana for personal pleasure in 2016.
- Vermont (VT): the state’s new marijuana law will take effect July 1 this year. The law prohibits every one in the car (when they are in the state) to smoke marijuana. Additionally, if there is anyone under the age of 18 accompanied, the person who uses marijuana in the car will face a fine ranging from $500 to $1,000 USD.
- Louisana (LA): medical marijuana can be bought at nine locations in the state. These are the first medical marijuana pharmacies in this state.
