Cannabis legalization can be broken into two parts: medical and recreational. Medical legalization means that a cannabis patient can access medical cannabis if they receive the proper documentation from a doctor and follow the specified government protocols. Recreational legalization means that anyone over a regulation-specified age can purchase cannabis from a licensed retailer with a valid Identification (ID). Legalization as a whole means that a person cannot be arrested, ticketed, or convicted for cannabis consumption, purchase, or ownership if that person is following all necessary rules and laws.
