Recreational FAQs

Who can purchase recreational marijuana?

Only adults 21 years of age and older arepermitted to purchase marijuana. You must present a valid ID to purchase.

How much weed can I legally buy at once?

You can purchase up to one ounce of cannabis with no more than 5 grams being concentrates (extracts).

Can I pay with a credit or debit card?

Nope, cash only!

Can I smoke or consume marijuana in public?

No. Marijuana can be used only on private property in Arizona. It remains illegal to use marijuana in public places such as bars, parks, restaurants, sidewalks, and all other open public spaces. However, possession in public is legal as long as it is not on any federal land (Grand Canyon, national parks or forests, etc.)

Can I travel with marijuana from Arizona to another state or country?

No, what happens in AZ stays in AZ. All marijuana purchased in Arizona must be consumed within the state. Because it is still federally illegal, traveling with cannabis across state lines is 100% illegal regardless of where you are or where you are going (even if it is to a state with legalized recreational and/or medical marijuana)

Can I smoke or consume and drive?

No! The Smart and Safe Act states that “driving, flying or boating while impaired to the slightest degree by marijuana remains illegal.” This includes the use of both medical and recreational cannabis.

Can employees use recreational marijuana during off-hours in Arizona?

Yes. However, Arizona employers reserve the right to maintain a drug-free work environment. Employees are encouraged to discuss this matter with their employer to determine rules and regulations specific to their workplace.
