What's Legal? 

When to smoke 'em and when to hold 'em

Green light (legal July 1)

Smoking or otherwise consuming marijuana at home or in other private places

Starting a small (four plants maximum per residence) pot garden (out of public view) on your own property

Possessing up to eight ounces of usable marijuana at home

Carrying up to one ounce of usable marijuana on your person

Yellow light (legal eventually)

Growing or processing cannabis for sale in the recreational market

Selling recreational marijuana products

Red light (not legal)

Consuming cannabis in public (i.e. on the street and in bars/restaurants)

Smoking weed under the age of 21

For personal use, growing more than four plants, having more than eight ounces, or carrying more than one ounce on your person

Driving while under the influence of marijuana

Other considerations

Even though it is now legal for adults 21 and over to grow, posses, and consume marijuana, your employer may still drug test you and deny or revoke employment based on the results. You do not have a constitutional right to smoke weed.
