What exactly does that change?</strong></h2> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">Back on November 8, 2016, California voted to pass Prop 64, allowing the legal sale of marijuana not just for medicinal purposes, but for <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/02/us/california-today-legalization-is-here-shrug.html" target="_blank" style="color: #ed4d1f;text-decoration: none">recreational enjoyment</a>.</p> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">And starting on New Year’s Day, the state’s dispensaries were officially permitted to start selling.</p> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">California is now only the 5th state in the US (after WA, CO, OR and AK) to legalize recreational weed — though on a federal level, it’s still illegal. Here’s the skinny on what you need to know.</p> <h4 style="font-size: 18px;font-weight: bold;margin-bottom: 8px;margin-top: 16px"><strong>First off, what’s the law say?</strong></h4> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">Under Prop 64 (AKA, the <a href="http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2017/12/a-quick-guide-to-legal-pot-in-california/" target="_blank" style="color: #ed4d1f;text-decoration: none">Adult Use of Marijuana Act</a>), 21+ year-old adults in California are legally allowed to possess up to 1 oz (28.5 g) of bud in public, and can also grow up to 6 plants at home.</p> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">Only approved dispensaries can legally sell weed (both for medicinal and recreational purposes), though anyone can simply “give it away” as a gift.</p> <h4 style="font-size: 18px;font-weight: bold;margin-bottom: 8px;margin-top: 16px"><strong>How will it affect you?</strong></h4> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">Until now, you needed a medical marijuana card to legally buy weed at a CA dispensary (medical weed has been legal in the state <a href="http://www.latimes.com/health/la-oew-gutwillig-imler6-2009mar06-story.html" target="_blank" style="color: #ed4d1f;text-decoration: none">since ‘96</a>). Henceforth, you should be able to <a href="http://blog.getnugg.com/how-to-buy-recreational-marijuana-california-legal/" target="_blank" style="color: #ed4d1f;text-decoration: none">waltz into any shop</a> and buy <em>sans</em> card.</p> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">However, be cognizant that while possession of up to 1 oz in public is now legal, <em>consumption</em> is not. California’s got very strict anti-smoking laws in place, and if you’re caught burning one down in your car or on the street, you could face a $100 fine.</p> <h4 style="font-size: 18px;font-weight: bold;margin-bottom: 8px;margin-top: 16px"><strong>How will it affect the industry at large?</strong></h4> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">Prop 64 imposes hefty taxes both on the cultivation and sale of legal hulk, including a $9.25-per-ounce tax on harvested nugs, and a 15% distributor tax (i.e. weed shops) — meaning legal weed may be a tad pricey at first.</p> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">But it’s projected that legal weed in CA will grow into a $3.7B-per-year industry in 2018, and a $5.1B industry by 2019, placing it on par with statewide <a href="http://www.latimes.com/business/lazarus/la-fi-lazarus-new-california-laws-20180102-story.html" target="_blank" style="color: #ed4d1f;text-decoration: none">beer sales</a>.</p> <p

15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">“The Veve” reportedly broke even in 2017 making close to $650m — a $250m spike from 2016, with their videos topping 25B monthly views.</p> <h4

in 2009 as a joint venture between the “big 3” record labels (Universal, Sony, and Warner), who were miffed at the billions of dollars in ad revenue they <em>weren’t</em> making on the visual medium of music. </p> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">So, when YouTube cemented themselves as the quintessential online streaming

style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">According to Vevo, they said advertisers came running after pulling millions of dollars from

monetize their content in the past, it seems their rival’s bumbles, along with a surge in music video streaming (the J-Biebs-featured hit “Despacito” raking in 4.5B views this year alone), are finally
