The law changes the definition of marijuana to include concentrates:
"Marijuana concentrates” is defined as resin extracted from the Cannabis plant with a high THC concentration, in contrast to “marijuana,” which includes the entire Cannabis plant. The definition of “marijuana-infused products” is changed to include marijuana or marijuana extracts with between 0.3 percent and 60 percent THC concentration.
Under state law, during one transaction adults can buy:
- one ounce of usable marijuana (leaf form);
- 16 ounces of marijuana-infused product in solid form (foods including candies);
- 7 grams of marijuana concentrates (oils, waxes);
- 72 ounces of marijuana-infused product in liquid form (beverages).
