AZ Recreational Rules for Adult Use

We know navigating the new recreational market can be intimidating, but we’re here to make it easy for you! We’ve compiled the key points of Prop 207 rules and regulations for you to keep you safe and compliant as a recreational customer. You can always refer back to this list if you need a refresher.

  1. Adults 21 and older would be able to possess 1 ounce of marijuana with no more than 5 grams of it being marijuana concentrates (extracts). Possessing more than one ounce but less than 2.5 ounces would be a petty offense. 
  1. Limits home cultivation to 6 plants at an individual’s primary residence and 12 plants at a residence where two or more individuals who are at least 21 years old reside at one time.
  1. A 16% excise tax (the same as cigarettes and alcohol) is placed on recreational marijuana products. Money from the excise tax would fund various state agencies and be dispersed between community college districts, police and fire departments, and the Highway User fund.
  1. Marijuana use would remain illegal in public places (restaurants, parks, sidewalks, etc). Offenders are guilty of a petty offence.
  1. No marijuana products could be sold that imitate brands marketed to children or look like humans, animals, insects, fruits, toys or cartoons.
  1. Marijuana edibles will be limited to a maximum of 10mg of THC per edible, and limited to a maximum of 100mg of THC per package of edibles for recreational use.
  1. Driving, flying or boating impaired to even the slightest degree by marijuana remains illegal (i.e., zero tolerance rule).
  1. Marijuana testing facilities will test marijuana for harmful contaminants (i.e., pesticides, molds, etc).
  1. Beginning on July 12, 2021, people convicted previously of possessing less than an ounce of marijuana or six or fewer plants or paraphernalia can petition to have the record expunged.
  1. On or after Jan 1, 2023, the ADHS can adopt rules to permit recreational marijuana deliveries.
