In Upland, adults 21 or older can use marijuana for recreational purposes under the Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA). California voters adopted the proposition in November 2016, allowing residents of legal age to possess, consume, and produce marijuana for personal use without risking criminal repercussions.
Pursuant to the AUMA, it is legal for Upland residents of legal age to cultivate up to six cannabis plants and have up to 1 ounce of marijuana flower or 8 grams of concentrates in their possession. The AUMA allows adults aged 21 or older to transfer up to 1 ounce of cannabis flower or 8 grams of cannabis concentrates to other individuals who are 21 years or older. However, cash or any other form of compensation may not be involved in such transfers.
The following regulations are outlined in the AUMA:
It is unlawful to smoke weed in public places
It is illegal to distribute or sell cannabis to minors
It is illegal to drive or operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of cannabis
Possession of cannabis on federal property is not permitted
Note that under the provisions of the Upland City code, it is illegal for any entity or business to sell cannabis within the city
The following are regulations relating to medical cannabis in the City of Upland:
Legal Status and Eligibility: California legalized medical marijuana through Proposition 215 in 1996, making the use of cannabis for medical purposes legal in all its jurisdictions for persons suffering from certain medical conditions. Such persons are required to obtain recommendations for medical marijuana use from certified Californian physicians. The approved conditions under the state law are:
Persistent muscle spasms
Any symptom or condition that restricts your ability to carry out a basic life operation
Use and Possession: Medical marijuana patients in Upland are allowed to possess up to 8 ounces of dried cannabis
Cultivation: Medical marijuana patients and caregivers in California are allowed to cultivate up to 6 mature or 12 immature plants. However, such cultivation may only occur in enclosed, locked spaces
Medical Marijuana Cards: California's Medical Marijuana Identification Card (MMIC) program provides patients with state-issued ID cards that identify as authority medical marijuana patients. While the card is not required to buy medical cannabis, it provides legal protection against arrest for possession and cultivation of medical marijuana and exempts patients from paying sales taxes on medical cannabis purchases
Minors and Caregivers: A minor in Upland can access medical marijuana with parental consent and a doctor's recommendation. However, such access may only be permitted through the patient's designated and approved caregiver. A caregiver must be 21 or older and reside in California
Employers and Landlords: Employers in California are not required to accommodate medical marijuana use or allow it in the workplace. Landlords can also prohibit the use and cultivation of marijuana on their property
Traveling and Shipping: Marijuana is still illegal under federal law, which means it is illegal to travel with or ship marijuana across state lines into Upland
