Proposition 64 made it legal for Rialto and California adults to use recreational marijuana. However, it also permits California jurisdictions to ban cannabis businesses from operating within their borders. While Rialto prohibits cannabis dispensaries from setting up within its limits, it does not restrict individuals of legal age from possessing, using, or growing cannabis pursuant to Proposition 64 and the MAUCRSA. Hence, the following cannabis possession, use, and cultivation laws apply in the City of Rialto:
Rialto residents over the age of 21 may possess and use up to
28.5 grams of marijuana or 8 grams of concentrated marijuana
Individuals aged 21 or older may cultivate up to six live cannabis plants at home for personal recreational use
Outdoor cannabis cultivation is banned in Rialto
It is illegal to ship marijuana across state lines
Driving a motor vehicle under the influence of cannabis is prohibited
Consuming cannabis in public areas is illegal
Marijuana possession or consumption on federal lands and buildings is not allowed
Rialto residents may not use marijuana within 1,000 feet of a school or childcare facility
Although California recreational cannabis law requires cannabis buyers and users to be 21 or older, you can. If you are 18 or older and have a qualifying ailment, you may purchase medicinal cannabis. SB 420, commonly known as the Medical Marijuana Program Act, allows individuals with qualifying illnesses to possess, use, and cultivate cannabis for personal uses, provided they have gotten medical marijuana cards from state-licensed physicians.
Obtaining a medical marijuana identification card under SB420 is optional, but individuals who have obtained such cards can avoid sales taxes on medical marijuana. The card is also acceptable statewide, meaning Rialto residents holding medical marijuana cards can purchase medical cannabis products from other California jurisdictions. Patients with medical marijuana cards may possess up to 226.8 grams of concentrated cannabis and grow up to six mature or twelve immature cannabis plants.
Before obtaining a medical marijuana card in Rialto, you must fulfill the eligibility requirement. To be eligible, you must reside in Rialto and obtain medical cannabis certification attesting that you have one or more California Department of Public Health-approved medical conditions. The approved medical conditions for medical marijuana use are:
Seizures, including seizures with epilepsy
Persistent muscle spasms, including those related to multiple sclerosis
Any other medical symptom that substantially limits your ability to conduct a significant life activity listed in the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990
After confirming that you meet the eligibility requirements, you may schedule an appointment with the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health to complete a medical marijuana identification card application (MMIC). According to state law, applications for MMICs may only be submitted at county health offices. The county health office does not accept walk-in submissions by applicants. To schedule an appointment, call the county public health office at (800) 782-4264.
To complete your application, the following will be required:
Completed medical marijuana card application form
The original written recommendation of the patient's medical records or medical documentation (CDPH 9044 form)
A government-issued photo identification, such as a State of California-issued driver's license or California ID. If you are under 18 and lack photographic identification, you may substitute a certified copy of your birth certificate in place of the photo identification
Proof of residence in the City of Rialto with your name and current physical address
Application fee of $100, or $50 if you are a Medi-Cal beneficiary. Payment can be made by cash, cashier check, or money order. Note that exact change is required
A completed application must be submitted to the:
San Bernardino County Department of Public Health
Medical Marijuana Identification Card Program (MMICP)

San Bernardino, CA 92415-0010
Medical marijuana card applications are accepted by the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health appointment only on Mondays and Wednesdays between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Upon submitting your application, the physician's license will be verified with the Medical Board of California or the Osteopathic Medical Board of California.
