Using Cannabis in Lake Tahoe (and Beyond)

Marijuana used to be a substance that brought to mind Jazz musicians, Grateful Dead enthusiasts or stereotypical movie “stoner” types. But now cannabis has rebranded itself as a powerful supplement for those looking to increase their wellness, and rightfully so. (And it shows in the Truckee and Tahoe cannabis laws!) The CBD in cannabis can impact the brain and other functions of the body. 

California was a frontrunner in the legalization movement, allowing the sale of medical marijuana in 1996 and, while it took a while longer than many had hoped for, Tahoe cannabis laws expanded to include the sale for recreational usage in 2017. While this expands freedoms and opens things up considerably, there are strictly enforced regulations in place. 

Age limitations

  • Medicinal usage is limited to individuals over 18 and must be accompanied with a verified physicians’ recommendation or MMIC.
  • Recreational usage is for adults 21 years of age or older.

Amount limitations

  • Purchase for medicinal usage is restricted to 228 grams (8 oz) of cannabis flower per day.
  • Purchase for recreational usage is limited to 28.5 grams (1 oz) of cannabis flower, or 8 grams of cannabis concentrate per day.

Location restrictions

Truckee cannabis laws state that cannabis can be enjoyed by:

  • local residents within the comfort and security of their own home. 


  • by visitors and guests within their temporary dwellings.

But cannabis, even though it may be legal,  should NOT be consumed:

  • in any public area.
  • in any location where tobacco smoking is prohibited 


  • within 1,000 feet of any school, youth center or daycare. 

While the enjoyment of cannabis is a wonderful thing, it is important to use common sense and not risk your safety and the safety of others by driving under the influence. Marijuana products should also not be transported across state lines.
