Although the MAUCRSA allows cities and towns to opt out of permitting cannabis establishments to operate in their jurisdictions, it does not grant municipalities the right to restrict cannabis possession and use. Therefore, under the MAUCRSA:
Only persons aged 21 or older in Citrus Heights can legally possess, use, or cultivate cannabis. Such persons may hold up to 1 ounce of cannabis, and 8 grams of cannabis concentrates. Minors found in possession of any quantities of cannabis face harsh penalties
The home cultivation of cannabis is permitted in Citrus Heights but must be limited to six marijuana plants per private residence. This limit remains regardless of the number of individuals living in a private residence

Persons aged 18 or older in Citrus Heights are allowed to possess and use higher amounts of cannabis than recreational users for medical purposes if they meet certain conditions. The statute which makes this possible is Proposition 215. Proposition 215 also allows persons under 18 to access medical cannabis through their caregivers. Caregivers must be adult Californians who are designated by the patients being represented. The California Department of Public Health must also approve them as caregivers.
Under the California medical marijuana program, minors or adults must have at least one of the approved conditions under Proposition 215 to be permitted to possess medical cannabis. Qualifying patients must also obtain physician recommendations before ordering cannabis online or visiting a dispensary. The recommendation is the documentation qualifying an individual to purchase medical cannabis legally. California law also allows Citrus Heights patients to obtain optional medical marijuana cards. While the card is not a requirement to buy medical cannabis, persons who have obtained medical marijuana cards are exempt from sales and use taxes on medical cannabis purchases and can also use the card as proof of possessing higher cannabis limits than recreational users.
Citrus Heights patients who have obtained medical cannabis recommendations from approved physicians can possess up to 8 ounces of cannabis and grow six mature or 12 non-flowering cannabis plants. While recreational users are allowed to share cannabis with other adults, medical cannabis users are prohibited from such an act.
