Due to the passage of Proposition 64 in the November 2016 state election, the use of nonmedical (i.e. recreational) marijuana has been legalized. It is now legal to for any adult 21 years or older to:
- Possess, transport, obtain or give away to other adults 21 or older no more than 28.5 grams of marijuana or 8 grams of concentrated marijuana
- Cultivate up to 6 plants per residence and possess the marijuana produced by these plants (subject to "reasonable regulations" by local governments)
Workshops: In order to address the changes brought with the legalization of marijuana, the Town of Truckee Town Council held a series of workshops to discuss the Town's approach to marijuana regulations. The focus of these workshops included discussions on indoor and outdoor cultivation, manufacturing and processing, taxation, retail and commercial uses and delivery services.
